Established in 2008, the SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences Early Career Prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for research contributions to the solution of mathematical and computational problems in the geosciences.
The SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences Early Career Prize (SIAG/GS Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one individual in their early career in the field of geosciences for distinguished contributions to the field in the three calendar years prior to the award year.
The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to the field of geosciences. One key paper must be cited as evidencing the contributions, though a body of papers may be discussed in the nomination. The qualifying key paper must have been published in English in a peer-reviewed journal within the three calendar years preceding the award year. Either the candidate must be a graduate student or the key paper must have been published no more than three years after the candidate received their PhD.
For the 2021 award, the paper must have been published between the dates of January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2020. The candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 2015.
Congratulations to the 2019 winner, Olav Møyner, who received the award at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical & Computational Issues in the Geosciences in Houston, Texas. Learn more about his accomplishments.

The SIAG/GS Early Career Prize includes a certificate containing the citation. As part of the award, the recipient will be invited to give a brief plenary talk at the conference. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in giving the talk.
The prize will next be awarded in March 2021 at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences.
The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Geosciences and the Chair of the Prize Committee will announce the award at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences and present the award to the recipient. An announcement of the award will appear in SIAM News, and on the activity group's website and newsletter.
