Another day, another medal.
UA geosciences professor George Gehrels will receive the Geological Society of America's Day Medal at the 2010 GSA annual meeting in Denver on Oct. 30. The Arthur L. Day Medal was established in 1948 by Arthur L. Day to be awarded for outstanding distinction in contributing to geologic knowledge through the application of physics and chemistry to the solution of geologic problems.
Yesterday we learned that UA geoscientist George Davis will get the GSA Structure & Tectonics Div. Career Contribution Award. With the department just identified as the #1 geology grad program by US News & World Report, it's been a good week.
