Distinguished professor emeritus of geography Marston named fellow of American Association of Geographers

By Chuck Martin

Richard Marston, K-State university distinguished professor emeritus of geography, has been named a fellow of the American Association of Geographers, one of 20 in the inaugural class of fellows. 

The American Association of Geographers fellows program recognizes geographers who have made significant contributions to advancing geography. As the leading scientific and educational society of geographers, the association has 12,000 members from more than 100 countries. Only 0.2 percent of its membership will be selected as fellows in any given year.

Marston specializes in physical geography, geomorphology, mountain geography, and water resource geography. His main research interest is separating the effects of human activities on landscapes from changes that occur naturally.
