  • Nominations for EEGS Early Career and Frischknecht Awards (from Jutta Hager) (posted 9/2/2013)

Website: EEGS Awards (http://www.eegs.org/awards)

The EEGS / Geonics Early Career Award (ECA) acknowledges academic excellence, and encourages research in near surface geophysics and is presented annually to a full time university faculty member who is fewer than five years beyond the starting date of his or her current academic appointment and within ten years post-completion of his/her PhD, to acknowledge significant and ongoing contributions to the discipline of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics.

The EEGS/NSGS-SEG Frank Frischknecht Leadership Award recognizes an individual who shows extraordinary leadership in advancing the cause of near surface geophysics through long-term, tireless, and enthusiastic support of the environmental and engineering geophysics community. The award is presented jointly by EEGS and the Near Surface Geophysics Section of the SEG (NSGS-SEG). The award alternates on an approximately 18-month interval between EEGS’ SAGEEP and the NSG Section of the SEG annual meeting, with EEGS.

The contact for both awards is the EEGS Nominations and Awards Committee Chair Doug Laymon, doug.laymon@tetratech.com. All nominations are requested prior to the end of the year (Dec, 2013).
