The Lamarck Medal

Prof. Jim Best will be the 2018 awardee of the Lamarck Medal from the European Geosciences Union! 

The Jean Baptiste Lamarck Medal is established by the EGS Division on Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Paleontology in recognition of the scientific achievement of Jean Baptiste Lamarck.

It is reserved for scientists for their exceptional contributions to either Stratigraphy, Sedimentology or Paleontology. The medal is awarded each year, alternating between the three subdivisions, so that each third year a Stratigrapher, Sedimentologist or Paleontologist is awarded.
