Price Medal

The Price Medal is awarded for investigations of outstanding merit into formation and composition of the Earth and/or planets (e.g. seismology, tectonics, geodesy, geomagnetism, solar system dynamics, meteoritics). This medal may be awarded for a single outstanding piece of work (such that younger scientists may be candidates for this award).


The Annual General Meeting 1992 approved the introduction of the Price Medal. It is to honour Professor Albert Thomas Price and was first awarded in 1994.
