This honor was awarded this past week by the American Association of Geographers Geomorphology Specialty Group at the AAG Annual Meetings in San Francisco. The Grove Karl Gilbert Award is one of the most important on geomorphology in the USA and internationally. It is presented to the author(s) of a single significant contribution to the published research literature in geomorphology during the past three years.

Dr Latrubesse’s awarded contribution “Large rivers, megafans and other Quaternary avulsive fluvial systems: A potential “who’s who” in the geological record.” (Earth-Science Reviews 146 (2015), 1–30) synthesizes more than two decades of research in many of the largest rivers and megafans of Earth and field expeditions to some of the most remote and wildest places of the tropics.
