About this funder:



SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology) is an international not-for-profit Society. Through its network of international members, the Society is dedicated to the dissemination of scientific information on sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleontology, environmental sciences, marine geology, hydrogeology, and many additional related specialties.

The Society supports the science and its members in their professional objectives by publication of two major scientific journals, the Journal of Sedimentary Research (JSR) and PALAIOS, in addition to producing research conferences, short courses, and Special Publications. Through SEPM's Continuing Education, Publications, Meetings, and other programs, members can both gain and exchange information pertinent to their geologic specialties.

The SEPM Foundation Inc. raises and distributes funds in support of SEPM activities. Through various funds, support is given to student activities, publications, short courses, research conferences and other appropriate endeavors.

The James Lee Wilson Award is bestowed in recognition of "Excellence in Sedimentary Geology by a Young Scientist." It is important that the Society continue to recognize those that have contributed to the science of sedimentary geology.
