AZGS publication on San Pedro River wins national award
The John C. Frye Memorial Award in Environmental Geology is being awarded to a team led by AZGS geologist Joe Cook, for our report, “Mapping of Holocene River Alluvium along the San Pedro River, Aravaipa Creek, and Babocomari River, Southeastern Arizona” [right, poster compiled from report map sheets].
The award is co-sponsored by the Geological Society of America and the Association of American State Geologists for the best publication in the field of environmental geology published by a state geological survey or by GSA during the past three years.
The report is the result of a project funded by the Arizona Dept. of Water Resources for use in groundwater adjudications.
The award, including a check for $1,000, will be presented at the GSA Annual Meeting, to be held this year in Minneapolis, October 9 - 12. The award will be announced at the Presidential Address and Awards Ceremony Sunday evening, and the award will be presented at the AASG Mid-Year Meeting held in conjunction with the GSA meeting.
This is the third time that AZGS geologists have received the prestigious Frye Award.
