The Geological Society Hjulström Award

We have the great honor to present this years Jubilee Fund awardee!

The Geological Society 2022 Hjulström Award within the area of sedimentology is awarded to Mark Johnson, docent and university lecturer at the Department of Earth Science, Gothenburg University.
Mark Johnson has worked extensively on sedimentology, geomorphology and on the formation of glacial deposits and history, as well as present-day glacial processes and varved sediments.

His sedimentological work is therefore fully in line with the original ideas and the spirit of Filip Hjulström on the uptake, transportation and deposition of sediments.

Mark is internationally renowned and a positive driving force within the Swedish geological community, not the least as a former President of the Geological Society.

The award ceremony will take place during the 150 years anniversary meeting in Uppsala 17-19 of August 2022.
