Ben's dissertation used geomorphical mapping to identify evidence for three locally-nourished glaciers in the Northwest Scottish Highlands with analysis suggesting that the glaciers underwent oscillatory retreat and implied that the frequency of ice-marginal oscillations was similar to that of glaciers in a modern temperate setting.

The Marjorie Sweeting prize is presented to the best undergraduate geomorphological dissertation undertaken at a UK university.

The award will be presented to Ben at the British Society for Geomorphology Annual General Meeting, in September 2014.
