Sun Shu Research Prizes
The Sun Shu Prizes (SUN SHU Prize China and SUN SHU Prize International) are
awarded to recognise outstanding scientists in the field of sedimentology.
The Prizes are awarded to honour the late Prof. Sun Shu, a Chinese sedimentologist
whose success and fame was achieved through the integration of sedimentological
analysis into numerous areas of research including sedimentary geotectonics,
mineral resources, and environmental sciences. He was a true pioneer in terms of
using tectonic facies analysis concepts and sedimentological data to solve problems
related to tectonics and basin analysis.
At the 21st International Sedimentological Congress in Beijing / online (2022), the Sun Shu Prizes were awarded to CHENGLIN GONG (China Prize) and GUILLAUME SUAN (International Prize).
