Marcus Milling Legendary Geoscientist Medal
The Marcus Milling Legendary Geoscientist Medal is essentially a lifetime achievement award, given in recognition of an individual’s high-quality basic and applied science achievements in the Earth sciences. The candidates will have previously received recognition for meritorious contributions and service from professional societies, universities, or other public-sector organizations. The successful candidate will be a senior scientist of national recognition and living at the time of selection and is expected to personally accept the award. This award, established in 1999, was named in late 2006. Previous recipients may be viewed at http://www.americangeosciences.org/awards/legendarygeoscientist.
