GSA James B. Thompson, Jr. Distinguished International Lectureship
The Geological Society of America is proud to announce the recipients of the 2017 GSA James B. Thompson, Jr. Distinguished International Lecturer Award. GSA seeks to be a leader in the global geoscience community in fulfillment of our mission and goals.
The GSA International committee selected Iain Simpson Stewart (Plymouth University) as the incoming speaker from outside of North America who will present seminars of broad geologic interest in a tour of selected academic and related institutions within North America.
Ross S. Stein (Temblor, Inc.) is the outgoing speaker from within North America who will present exciting and cutting edge geoscience research in a tour of foreign universities and geological institutions.
The lecture tours are made possible through a gift to the GSA Foundation by James B. Thompson, Jr., whose bequest contributed to the endowment of two lecture tours by distinguished geologists, one a non-North American scientist to tour academic and related institutions within North America, and the other a North American scientist to tour foreign universities and geological institutions. Both tours are arranged under the guidance of GSA International.
