BSRG Award for Masters Sedimentology

This prize is awarded to the best sedimentological project completed by a student on a one-year taught Masters course at a UK or Irish University and celebrates skills and achievement in sedimentology. The interests of BSRG members have always been broad, in line with our original ethos and therefore all aspects of sedimentology are considered. The project will normally have been submitted as part of the MSc degree requirement.

Masters projects submitted for the award should include sedimentological data that have been generated by the student through field, experimental or laboratory based work (such as the analysis of data from the subsurface).

The judging panel will look for the following:

The award: The recipient will be invited to give a presentation on their project at the BSRG Annual Meeting in the year of the award. The award will cover travel to the meeting, registration and accommodation.

Submission for consideration of the award: Departments should select their top ranked, independent project by a final year student and submit: (1) student’s name and degree course (2) the mark and a pdf copy of the marksheet and (3) send by email/FTP/dropbox the entire project in pdf format to the BSRG Awards Officer by September 30th each year.

Announcement: The BSRG Award for Masters Sedimentology will be announced by the end of October each year.
