Barringer Medal and Award

In 1982, the Barringer Crater Company established the Barringer Medal and Award to recognize exceptional achievement in the study of impact cratering and impact phenomena. The medal, made of nickel-iron like the meteorite that created the Barringer Meteor Crater, and the award honor the memory of D. Moreau Barringer Sr. and his son D. Moreau Barringer Jr, and are presented at the Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society. D. Moreau Jr., a steadfast supporter of the Meteoritical Society, also made his own contribution to impact science: he was the first to identify the Odessa crater, the second impact site on Earth to be recognized.
