Overview:

The QRA sponsors several prizes in recognition of excellence in the field of Quaternary research. The Lewis Penny Medal is awarded to a young or new research worker who has made a significant contribution to our understanding of the Quaternary stratigraphy of the British Isles. 

The Medal will be awarded to a young (normally less than 35 years old) or new research worker, who has been a member of the QRA for at least 3 years, and who has made a significant contribution to the Quaternary stratigraphy of the British Isles and its maritime environment. This is notionally taken to mean Britain, Ireland and surrounding offshore areas but adjacent areas of continental Europe that have relevance to the British Isles may also be taken into account. Quaternary stratigraphy is considered here to include both Pleistocene and Holocene records and to be broadly-based, encompassing lithostratigraphy, chronostratigraphy, biostratigraphy or other relevant fields.
