EAGE has a growing global presence in geoscience and engineering and would like its Awards to reflect the breadth and scope of the Association. We therefore encourage members from all over the world to nominate candidates. By submitting a nomination, you can help to recognize and promote technical and professional achievement from within the membership and throughout the world.


Introducing the EAGE “Marie Tharp” Award

This year EAGE is proud to introduce a new recognition, the Sustainable Energy YP Award “Marie Tharp”. For this category, we encourage direct nominations by promising and creative talents among the next generation of energy transition leaders: candidates who meet the requirements can nominate themselves.

Eligible candidates must be MSc and Ph.D. students who are pursuing a college curriculum directed toward a career in geoscience and engineering to support the energy transition. Recognizing the multidimensional nature of the challenge, the Award encourages applications from a diverse range of disciplines. 

The awardee will receive a grant to attend the EAGE 2024 GET Conference. Participation in the conference will not only serve to recognize their contributions but also provide an invaluable opportunity to network with industry experts, gain insights into the latest advancements, and further fuel their passion for driving positive change in the energy transition landscape.

Nominations and questions about the EAGE awards can be addressed to:


Submissions for the EAGE Marie Tharp Award 2024 are closed. The winner will be announced during the Opening Session of the Conference. If you submitted an application, you can expect to be informed about the outcome of the Awards Committee’s review by mid-June 2024.
Submissions for the EAGE Awards 2025 will open in August 2024.




Nomination package requirements

1) The nominee’s CV and (if appropriate) the list of publications;

2) A nominating letter that summarises the individual’s achievements and details why they deserve the Award you propose. It is particularly important to describe how the candidate’s work has made a significant difference to society, to the Association, or to science. For the EAGE Marie Tharp Award, candidates are invited to apply directly (a nominator is not required);

3) At least one letter of support from technically qualified people who know the nominee and their work. Although the minimum is one support letter, nominators are encouraged to include a variety of support letters to illustrate the nominee’s strengths. However, Awards are not decided by the number of support letters. For the EAGE Marie Tharp Award, letters of support are not required.


For the Marie Tharp Award, the nomination package consists of:

  1. A nomination letter by the applicant detailing their motivation for applying for this Award, including their achievements until that time as well as ongoing projects, with a particular focus on their plans to contribute to advancing practices in the field of the energy transition and contributing to the work of the geoscience and engineering community, and EAGE, in this domain;
  2. The applicant’s (CV) and (if appropriate) the list of publications.


Please download and read the Nomination Guidelines before to submit a nomination.




  • Most Awards are limited to one candidate. The Honorary Membership and, in exceptional circumstances, the Conrad Schlumberger Award and the Arie van Weelden Award, may be offered to a maximum of two candidates.

As a global professional Association, our members and volunteers are the cornerstone of what we do. All Committee positions, including the EAGE Board, are filled with volunteers supporting our mission. 

As a result, we are frequently looking for new volunteers to contribute to our activities and support the EAGE community worldwide. Here is how you can get involved!

There are two ways to indicate your interest in volunteering: by writing to or by registering your interest in the EAGE Engagement Survey.



Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
