Congratulations to our Rutgers College Geology alumus Dr. Matthew Golombek, (Rutgers BS, 1976, U Mass Ph.D., 1981) who has been awarded this year’s Geological Society of America, Planetary Geology Division’s G.K. Gilbert Award. Dr. Golombek is currently a Project/Research Scientist at California Institute of Technology Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
"The G. K. Gilbert Award is made for outstanding contributions to the solution of a fundamental problem(s) of planetary geology in its broadest sense, including planetary geology, geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, andtectonics, geophysics, and the field of meteoritics. Such contributions may consist either of a single outstanding publication, or a series of publications that have had great influence on the field. The award is named for G. K. Gilbert, who over one hundred years ago clearly recognized the importance of a planetary perspective in solving terrestrial geological problems.”
