Clough Medallists & Memorial Award

The Edinburgh Geological Society rewards excellence in geology by presenting annually the Clough Medal and, biennially, the Clough Memorial Award.

The Clough Medal is presented to a senior scientist who, in the view of the Society's Clough Committee, has made a significant contribution to knowledge of the geology of Scotland or the north of England, or a Scottish geologist who has significantly advanced the knowledge of any aspect of geology.

 The Clough Memorial Award is a monetary award, given to a geologist of British nationality and up to 35 years old whose research on some aspect of the geology of Scotland or the north of England is considered as having outstanding merit.
