Congratulations to Bob Strom!
On Monday, October 19, Professor Robert Strom received the Geological Society of America's G.K. Gilbert Award at the GSA meeting in Portland. Jay Melosh presented the award.
The G. K. Gilbert Award is presented annually by the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America for outstanding contributions to the solution of fundamental problems in planetary geology in the broadest sense, which includes geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, geophysics, geologic mapping, and remote sensing.
Such contributions may consist either of a single outstanding publication or a series of publications that have had great influence in the field. The award is named for the pioneering geologist G. K. Gilbert.
