Established in 2008, the prize is awarded to an outstanding senior researcher for broad and distinguished contributions to the solution of mathematical and computational problems in the geosciences.
The SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences Career Prize (SIAG/GS Career Prize) is awarded every two years to an outstanding senior researcher who has made broad and distinguished contributions to the field of geosciences.
The award may be given to any scientist who has held a PhD or equivalent degree for at least 15 years.
For the 2021 award, the candidate must have received their PhD no later than 2005. The award can be received only once in a lifetime.
Congratulations to the 2019 winner, Omar Ghattas, who received the award at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical & Computational Issues in the Geosciences in Houston, Texas. Learn more about his accomplishments.
