La Sezione di Storia delle Geoscienze si congratula con il suo primo iscritto Professor Giorgio Vittorio Dal Piaz per il conferimento del prestigioso "Florence Bascom Geologic Mapping Award" da parte della Geological Society of America.
Questa la descrizione generale del premio:
The Florence Bascom Geologic Mapping Award was created by GSA Council in 2013 and the first award was presented in 2015. This award acknowledges contributions in published high-quality geologic mapping that led the recipient to publish significant new scientific or economic-resource discoveries, and to contribute greater understanding of fundamental geologic processes and concepts.
La cerimonia di consegna dei premi è avvenuta in modalità mista domenica 15 Ottobre 2023 in occasione della "Awards Ceremony" del GSA Connects 2023 Meeting che si è tenuto a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
About the award:
GSA Florence Bascom Geologic Mapping Award
The Bascom Geologic Mapping Award’s concept was approved by GSA Council in October 2013 and first awarded in 2015. This award acknowledges contributions in published high-quality geologic mapping that led the recipient to publish significant new scientific or economic-resource discoveries and to contribute greater understanding of fundamental geologic processes and concepts. The objective is to encourage training and support toward production of excellent, accurate, detailed, purposeful geologic maps and cross sections. With respect to size or scale, there are no restrictions on map products.
GSA’s Bascom Geologic Mapping Award will be made on an annual basis, leaving the option open for multiple awards to be given under unusual circumstances in any given year or to make no award in any given year. The recipient will have authored high-quality geologic maps, cross sections, and summary reports that have received scientific acclaim and are available to both peers and the public, through federal or state agencies or major scientific societies. In evaluating the merits of nominees for this award, scientific achievements should be considered rather than contributions in teaching, administration, or service. The criteria employed by the Geologic Mapping Award Committee include (A) excellence of the nominee’s published geologic maps; (B) record of greater understanding of fundamental geologic processes and concepts, emerging directly from the meritorious quality of the geologic mapping; and (C) peer acclaim of new discoveries that emerged from the mapping and their societal applications. Nominees may or may not be members of the Society, and they may be from any nation.
