Professor Brian P J Williams has been awarded the Grover E. Murray Memorial Distinguished Educator Award, writes Ted Nield
Professor Brian P J Williams has been awarded the Grover E. Murray Memorial Distinguished Educator Award by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), in recognition of his ‘distinguished and outstanding contributions to geological education’.
Brian’s diverse research has centred on the sedimentological study of arid terrestrial environments (deserts, braided streams, playas and lakes) such as those that prevailed over much of Earth in the Devonian and Permo-Triassic Periods of Earth history; as well as rocks laid down by the Permo-Carboniferous ice age in the Southern Hemisphere.
Congratulations to Brian for this prestigious award.
