Dear colleagues

The Nordic Geoscientist Award is presented every second year in connection with the Nordic
Winter Meeting. The Award is presented to a Nordic geoscientist who has, in the course of
his/her career, been strongly involved in the society around us, as well as in specific fields in
the geosciences.

All members of the Nordic geological societies can propose candidates: proposals should be
ca. 500 words.

A jury, consisting of the leaders of each of the Nordic geological societies, will consider the
proposals and prepare a written statement on its decision on the Award.

The prize will consist of a framed diploma and an engraved plate of a rock from the hosting
country. The winner will be invited to hold a plenary lecture at the Winter Meeting in
connection with presentation of the Award.

Proposals for the Nordic Geoscientist Award should be sent to the president of the Geological
Society in your country by February 15st 2022.
