Dr. Missy Eppes was elected as a Geological Society of America Fellow at the recent GSA Council meeting. Her nomination was submitted by Roger LeBaron Hooke, Research Professor at the University of Maine, and an eminent geomorphologist specializing in alluvial fans. Support letters came from Scott Burns at Portland State University, a specialist in landslide studies, and from me. Below is a description of the GSA Fellowship:
"Society Fellowship is an honor bestowed on the best of our profession by election at the spring GSA Council meeting. GSA members are nominated by existing GSA Fellows in recognition of their distinguished contributions to the geosciences through such avenues as publications, applied research, teaching, administration of geological programs, contributing to the public awareness of geology, leadership of professional organizations, and taking on editorial, bibliographic, and library responsibilities."
Congratulations to Missy for a well-deserved honor!
