Earth and Planetary Surface Processes

The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes (EPSP) Focus Group began officially, late in 2008, following approval by the AGU of a proposal from the community. Earth and Planetary Surface Processes is a multidisciplinary field that embraces the full range of processes — including anthropogenic — that generate, erode, and measure landscapes, that generate stratigraphy, and that couple the internal dynamics of the surface to climatic and tectonic forcings.

The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes focus group has established two awards and one named lecture to recognize outstanding individuals who are in various stages of their career. Details about each honor are provided below:
