GOLD MEDALISTS

Steven M. Stanley of the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, has been named GSA's 2013 Penrose Medalist in recognition of his eminent research in pure geology and for outstanding original contributions that mark a major advance in the science of geology; namely, paleobiology. Nominator Noel James writes that Stanley is "one of the world's pre-eminent paleobiologists who has fundamentally changed the way we think about and interpret the rock record." Nominator Bruce Runnegar says, "Steven Stanley is a leader, a renowned scientist, and a highly creative individual. His trademark is providing a clear explanation for phenomena that have puzzled whole communities for decades."

Richard W. Carlson of the Carnegie Institution of Washington has been awarded the Arthur L. Day Medal for outstanding distinction in contributing to geologic knowledge through the application of physics and chemistry to the solution of geologic problems. Nominator Stan R. Hart writes, "There is hardly any field of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry that Rick has not strongly impacted and this impact has extended to the whole Earth a
