Prof Pearce will receive his medal and give a short lecture – "Geochemical Fingerprinting of Rocks and Minerals" – at the Society's President's Day on 4 June.

30 May 2014

As the Geological Society of London explains, "the Murchison Medal is regarded very highly by the Society and is not normally awarded on the basis of a few good papers or achievements. The Murchison Medal is normally given to people who have made a significant contribution to the science by means of a substantial body of research and for contributions to 'hard' rock studies."

The citation for the award to Prof Pearce will be available via this link following the presentation ceremony on 4 June.
