Yorkshire has a varied and complex geological setting with a vast array of dramatic scenery and history tied to its underlying geology. At the Yorkshire Geological Society we benefit from a similarly good mix of members from different geological backgrounds, ranging from beginners to professional geologists, all of whom enjoy the geology of Yorkshire and northern England for numerous different reasons - whether for the fossils it contains, the range of geological features on display, or simply the dramatic natural landscape that gives the region its distinctive character.
In recognition of works in the associated fields of geology and geosciences, the Yorkshire Geological Society offers a series of different medals and awards to further encourage the continued growth and dissemination of original ideas and research in the geological sciences. Awards are generally presented at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
A summary of criteria for the awards offered by the Yorkshire Geological Society and past recipients for each award can be found in the document below.
