The Francis P. Shepard Medal for Marine Geology is awarded in recognition of "Excellence in Marine Geology."

 

Nominees for the medal will be persons who have a sustained record of outstanding research contributions to Marine Geology (e.g., the distribution and characterization of modern sediments, marine geomorphology, or the structure of continental margins) or to other significant aspects of Marine Geology, such as geophysics, geobiology, and geochemistry, providing there is a clear link to marine sedimentation. The recognition is not to be limited to members of the Society or other professional organizations, nor to citizens of any one country. Recipients of the Shepard Medal are eligible as later nominees for the Twenhofel Medal.
 
All nominees must be between 20 to 29 years since PhD (or equivalent degree).
