EAPS at GSA 2013

Friday, November 22, 2013

The Geological Society of America sponsored its 125th annual meeting in Denver October 27-30, 2013 with more than 20 EAPS faculty, students, and staff participating.

At the meeting Schlumberger Professor of Geology Clark Burchfiel was honored "for his outstanding service promoting tectonics and understanding of the Himalayan Geology and leading many successful expeditions to Tibet and adjacent areas" with the GSA's 2013 Distinguished Career Award.

Also during the week, Professor Taylor Perron gave a talk explaining the patterns of nature to members of the MIT Club of Colorado. EAPS and Cal Tech also held their annual reception at the Hyatt Regency with over 100 guests in attendance.
