Darren and Dan are being jointly recognised in this award for their outstanding commitment to, and pioneering research on the weaving of mātauranga Māori and earth science.
By challenging notions that mātauranga Māori is incompatible with science, their research has deepened understanding of geological history, geomorphology, climate change, geohazards and human-environment interactions across Aotearoa-New Zealand.
