Dr. Neal Iverson was honored with the Arthur L. Day Medal from the Geological Society of America at the Annual Meeting in Seattle on October 22.

Iverson, professor of geological and atmospheric sciences, received the prestigious honor based on his transformative work applying physics to the study of how glaciers move and shape landscapes.

Arthur L. Day, founding director of the Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, gave a donation to establish the award in 1948. The award recognizes outstanding distinction in the application of physics or chemistry to the solution of geologic problems.
