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.
