Jon Price Elected President of Geological Society of America
Jon Price, NBMG Director/State Geologist Emeritus, will serve as GSA President, July 2015 – June 2016.
“The future is bright for the geosciences from many perspectives. Our science is increasingly global as we recognize the challenges of understanding interconnected Earth systems—meeting the rising global demand for mineral and energy resources, handling tradeoffs regarding sustainable development, and reducing risks of natural disasters that impact the global economy. The geosciences are vital to meeting these societal challenges. We geoscientists are changing demographically, and GSA’s world is changing as well, to the benefit of our members, authors, the general public, and science. Our rigorously peer-reviewed and edited journals are becoming freely accessible on the Web. GSA’s dimensions are growing!” –Jonathan G. Price, GSA Presidential Address: The World is Changing
Congratulations to Jon!
