Greetings Planetary Community!

Please be advised that nominations for the GSA Planetary Geology Division’s highest honor, the G. K. Gilbert Award, are due December 1, 2018. Established in 1983, the G. K. Gilbert Award is presented annually by the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America for outstanding contributions to the solution of fundamental problems in planetary geology in the broadest sense, which includes geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, geophysics, geologic mapping, and remote sensing. Such contributions may consist either of a single outstanding publication or a series of publications that have had great influence in the field. The award is named for the pioneering geologist Grove Karl Gilbert, who was an influential early American geologist.
