SEPM Awards

Supported by the SEPM Foundation, Inc.

2024 Call for Nominations

Each year, the SEPM Society awards medals for scientific excellence to outstanding contributors in several areas of sedimentary geology. The awardees are nominated by members of the society but do not have to be members themselves. These medals are named in recognition of legendary geologists. SEPM also bestows Honorary Membership.

The other honors that are given by the Society each year are for excellence in communicating the science. These awards are chosen by committees that judge the best oral and poster presentations at our annual meeting and evaluate all of the papers published in our two scientific journals, JSR and PALAIOS. Thus, each year we also recognize the best technical presentations. We also include a special category for student presentations. All award nominees are expected to have met SEPM's Code of Ethical Professional Conduct.

Please take the time to nominate someone that you consider worthy. Nomination deadline for 2024 awards is 31 March 2024.
