Dr. R. Damian Nance, Distinguished Professor of Geological Sciences at Ohio University, has been named a Geological Society of America Fellow.

Society Fellowship is an honor bestowed on the best of the profession by election at the spring GSA Council meeting. GSA members are nominated by existing GSA Fellows in recognition of their distinguished contributions to the geosciences through such avenues as publications, applied research, teaching, administration of geological programs, contributing to the public awareness of geology, leadership of professional organizations, and taking on editorial, bibliographic, and library responsibilities.

Nance was recognized for his prolific and highly cited research spanning four decades into tectonic processes, especially supercontinent cycles, his contribution to GSA publications and IGCP-UNESCO Programs, mentorship to several generations of students, and outreach to the general public.

GSA’s newly elected Fellows will be recognized at the 2014 GSA Annual Meeting Awards Ceremony on Sunday, Oct. 19, at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
