The G. K. Warren Prize is awarded by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences "for noteworthy and distinguished accomplishment in fluviatile geology and closely related aspects of the geological sciences."[1] Named in honor of Gouverneur Kemble Warren, it was first awarded in 1969 and has been awarded every four years since 1982.

List of G. K. Warren Prize winners[edit]

Alan D. Howard (2010)

For his seminal contributions on the theory of fluvial erosion, sedimentation, and landscape evolution.

Michael A. Church (2006)

For his extensive and innovative field and laboratory studies of the morphology and dynamics of natural and managed river channels at a range of scales

Gary Parker (2002)

For rigorous analysis based on fundamental physical principles and laboratory experiments markedly advancing our understanding of sediment transport, river morphology, and channel behavior.

Thomas Dunne (1998)

For his field observations as the basis for detailed theoretical analyses of many hydro-geomorphological problems, including surface erosion, snow-melt runoff, sediment budgets for small plots, and great rivers, including the Amazon.

Claudio Vita-Finzi (1994)

For his distinguished contributions to fluvial morphology in relation to climate, tectonic activity, and human history (archaeological geology), on the basis of field investigations on several continents.

John R. L. Allen (1990)

For his distinguished contributions to fluvial sedimentology and paleogeomorphology, which skillfully blends field studies of modern and ancient fluvial environments with laboratory experiments and mathematical modeling.

Stanley A. Schumm (1986)

For his sound, insightful contributions to the role of fluvial processes in the evolution of slopes, stream channels, and sediment production, and their practical concerns to man.

John T. Hack (1982)

For his major contributions to understanding of form and characteristics of river channels as related to geologic stratigraphy.

Walter B. Langbein (1976)

For his significant advancement of hydrology and fluviatile geology through geophysics and mathematics.

Luna B. Leopold (1973)

For his contributions to the field of hydraulic geometry of rivers and his studies of the riverine environment.

Ralph A. Bagnold (1969)

For his outstanding contributions in fluvial geology.
