EEGS/SEG-NSTS Frank Frischknecht Leadership Award - Now Accepting Nominations
The Frank Frischknecht Leadership Award is established to recognize an individual who shows extraordinary leadership in advancing the cause of near surface geophysics through long-term, tireless, and enthusiastic support of the environmental and engineering geophysics community. Such leadership is often boldly displayed by an invention, a new methodology or technique, a theoretical or conceptual advancement, or a unique innovation that transforms the nature and capabilities of near surface geophysics. The Frank Frischknecht Leadership Award is presented jointly by the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) and the Near-Surface Geophysics Technical Section (NSTS) of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). Past recipients of the joint award are Susan Pullan, Robert Corwin, Kenneth Stokoe, Susan Hubbard and Ken Zonge.
In the past, the Frank Frischknecht Leadership Award has been awarded by EEGS and the SEG NSTS. Today, the award alternates on an approximately 18-month interval between EEGS' Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP) and the NSTS at SEG's annual meeting.SEG Near Surface Technical Section and the EEGS are soliciting nominations for the Frank Frischknecht Award.

The Institutional Contribution Award
This award was established to uniquely recognize an institution that has provided exceptional contribution to the engineering and environmental geophysical community through the development of technical publications and symposiums or conferences that educate and promote the use of geophysical methods and enhance project results for end users.
Since its inception, the ultimate goal of EEGS has been to promote the use of near surface geophysics for engineering and environmental projects and to help educate potential end users about the value of using the techniques. To that end, EEGS has sought to build relationships with other societies and other organizations that presently implement or could potentially better use geophysical applications.
The inaugural Institutional Contribution Award was given to the Federal Highway Administration in 2005 at EEGS' annual SAGEEP conference. The ARO (Army Research Office) was awarded in 2015 at EEGS' annual SAGEEP conference in Austin, Texas.
The most recent Institutional Contribution Award was given to the Army Research Office (ARO) in 2015 at EEGS' annual SAGEEP conference in Austin, Texas.

The John Nicholl Memorial Award (formerly the Gold Award)
The John Nicholl Memorial Award recognizes an individual who has made exceptional contributions to the engineering and environmental geophysics community and to EEGS. Such contributions might include educational tools or curricula, outreach efforts, or building relationships with professional disciplines that comprise potential users of geophysics.
Past Recipients of the EEGS Gold Award:
The Alan Witten Best Paper AwardThe Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society is proud to offer the Best Paper Award for outstanding contribution to the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics. The award is given each year in honor of Alan Witten, the first editor of JEEG. Prof. Witten was an educator, writer, and adventurer and he had some notable discoveries under his belt, including an appearance on the History Channel, locating the longest dinosaur which was a model for the movie Jurassic Park, discovering Capt. Kidd's sunken treasure ship off Madagascar, and exploring a 6,500-year-old civilization in Israel.
The current editor of JEEG will make recommendations to the EEGS board of directors regarding potential candidates of the award. The recipient is ultimately decided by the board. The award carries the following benefits:
