G. K. Gilbert award session at GSA 2015

The G.K. Gilbert award session at this year’s GSA Annual Meeting, to take place in Baltimore, MD, November 1-4, is on the topic of “Understanding Mars’ geology, from orbiter to rover-based exploration.” This year’s G.K. Gilbert awardee is Dr. Matt Golombek, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The session is focused on the expanded view of Martian surface geology afforded by mobile robotic platforms, including the Mars Pathfinder, Mars Exploration Rovers, and the Mars Science Laboratory missions.

The GSA website is open until August 11 for abstract submissions, and abstracts are welcome for the G.K. Gilbert session. To submit to this session, please submit abstracts to the discipline pool and email the session co-chairs (Debra Buczkowski and Devon Burr) to let us know of your desire to present in the Gilbert session.

We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore in November!
