USGS Emeritus Scientist Ed Clifton to Receive the Francis J. Pettijohn Medal for Sedimentology from SEPM
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) emeritus scientist H. Edward Clifton has been selected by the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM, after former name, Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists) to receive one of the organization's most prestigious medals.
Ed is a prominent and internationally acclaimed research scientist who was a leader in science in the USGS' Branch of Pacific Marine Geology (currently the Western Coastal and Marine Geology Team) for more than 2 decades. He served as branch chief from 1978 to 1981 and is currently an emeritus scientist with the team.
Ed will receive the Francis J. Pettijohn Medal for Sedimentology from SEPM this coming spring. The medal is awarded in recognition of "Excellence in Sedimentology" to persons who have a significant record of outstanding contributions in sedimentary geology, including all aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy.
The citation reads:
"For trailblazing work in geological and biological aspects of shoreface and nearshore sedimentology; for pioneering work in modern environments and application of the results to the geological record; for leadership in stimulating, organizing, and communicating work in sedimentology; and for leading unforgettable field trips."
The medal will be awarded at the AAPG/SEPM Annual Meeting on April 20, 2004, in Dallas. The award is truly a distinguished and well-deserved recognition for Ed's career accomplishments, and we all can bask a little in the honor that it brings to the USGS. He deserves our hearty congratulations! Ed and his wife Ann currently live in Monterey, CA; he can be reached at email@example.com.
