Christopher Scholz, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, has been named the recipient of the Seismological Society of America's (SSA) top honor – the Harry Fielding Reid Medal.
The Seismological Society of America, established over a century ago, is an international scientific organization dedicated to the “advancement of seismology and its applications in understanding and mitigating earthquake hazards and in imaging the structure of the Earth.”
The Harry Fielding Reid Medal of the Seismological Society of America is awarded for outstanding contributions in seismology and earthquake engineering. It is awarded no more frequently than once in any calendar year. The award will be presented to Professor Scholz at the Society's Annual Meeting in Reno, Nevada in April 2016."
