The Grove Karl Gilbert Award for Excellence in Geomorphological Research

The Grove Karl Gilbert Award is presented to the author(s) of a single significant contribution to the published research literature in geomorphology during the past three years. Only a book, refereed journal article, or monograph will be considered with an emphasis on refereed research articles. Nominations for the Grove Karl Gilbert Award remain active for two years. The nomination package should include:

      • A copy of the relevant publication
