Recognizing Contributions to Earth and Planetary Surface Processes
The G.K. Gilbert Award in Surface Processes is presented annually and recognizes sustained and outstanding contributions to the field of Earth and planetary surface processes from a mid-career or senior scientist. Notable contributions can include the honoree’s single significant advance or sustained contributions to the field, and unselfish cooperation in research and the inclusion of early-career scientists in the field.
Renamed in 2014, this award honors G.K. Gilbert, a pioneer in modern quantitative geomorphology. The award is presented during the AGU Fall Meeting.

About the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Section
The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Section focuses on the full range of processes — including anthropogenic — that generate, erode, and measure landscapes, that generate stratigraphy, and that couple the internal dynamics of the surface to climatic and tectonic forcings.
