Paul Pellas-Graham Ryder Award
Awarded for Best planetary science paper of previous year by an undergraduate or graduate student.
Sponsored by Meteoritical Society and Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America
First awarded 2002

The Paul Pellas-Graham Ryder Award is jointly sponsored by the Meteoritical Society and the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America.[1] It recognizes the best planetary science paper, published during the previous year in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, and written by an undergraduate or graduate student (as first author). The topics covered by the award are listed on the cover of Meteoritics and Planetary Science. It has been given since 2002, and honors the memories of the incomparable meteoriticist Paul Pellas and lunar scientist Graham Ryder.
