EESA Faculty Affiliate Dan Stolper has received this year’s honor of the Geochemical Society’s F.W. Clarke Award, named for Frank Wigglesworth Clarke who has been called the father of geochemistry. The award honors a single outstanding contribution to geochemistry or cosmochemistry by an early-career scientist, published as a single paper or a series of papers on a single topic. Awardees receive an engraved silver medal, honorarium, and certificate.
Stolper, a geochemist who investigates a variety of problems related to the rock record, microbiology, and past and present biogeochemical cycles, received the Clarke Award for his work on clumped isotopes. At UC Berkeley, Stolper is an Assistant Professor of Geochemistry in the Earth & Planetary Sciences Department. More information is available about the honor and Clarke Award recipients here.
