BSRG Award for Undergraduate Sedimentology

This prize is awarded to the best final-year undergraduate sedimentological project and celebrates undergraduate 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. Sedimentology projects will normally have been submitted as part of the degree requirement in the student’s final year of their undergraduate programme (BSc or undergraduate Masters degree, e.g. MSci or MGeol) at a UK or Irish University.

Final-year 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). Final-year mapping projects that include a significant sedimentological component (such as a detailed analysis supported by for example, graphic logs, palaeoflow measurements, petrography, correlation panels or clast analysis) will be considered.

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 August 1st each year.

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