SEPM Awards

Supported by the SEPM Foundation, Inc.

Each year, the Society awards medals of scientific excellence for long term, 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 outstanding geologists in their honor. SEPM also bestows, at its discretion, Honorary Membership and a Distinguished Service Award. These awardees are also nominated by the membership but in this case, must be members themselves.

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.

    Service Recognition Awards
