Inge Lehmann Medal

The Inge Lehmann Medal is given annually to one honoree in recognition  for "outstanding contributions to the understanding of the structure, composition, and dynamics of the Earth's mantle and core"

Established in 1995, the Lehmann Medal is named in honor of Inge Lehmann, who made many contributions to our understanding of the Earth’s deep interior, including her discovery of the Earth’s inner core in 1936.  Donald Helmberger was the first recipient of the Lehmann Medal in 1997.
