Geography professor receives Distinguished Career Award from professional organization
Richard A. Marston, university distinguished professor of geography, was honored with the 2016 Melvin G. Marcus Distinguished Career Award by the Geomorphology Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers at its recent national meeting in San Francisco, California.
The award is given annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to geomorphogy over her/his career.
Marston was cited for his "dedication to students, a love of mountains and field experience, a sustained record of top level research, and a commitment to geomorphology above and beyond anything that is vaguely reasonable."
