Stephen E. Laubach
Structural Diagenesis Research Award Fund
(Nomination deadline -- April 1, 2016):
The Stephen E. Laubach Structural Diagenesis
Research Award Fund promotes research combining structural
geology and diagenesis, and curriculum development in structural
diagenesis. The donors believe multidisciplinary approaches often
reveal new insights into long-standing problems and expose productive
avenues for enquiry. To help promote the cross disciplinary emphasis
of this annual award, the Sedimentary Geology and
Structural Geology & Tectonics Divisions have been designated to
jointly select the recipient.
Graduate students, postgraduate and faculty level
researchers are eligible.
This award addresses the rapidly growing recognition
that fracturing, cement precipitation and dissolution, evolving rock
mechanical properties and other structural diagenetic processes can
govern recovery of resources and sequestration of material in deeply
buried, diagenetically altered and fractured sedimentary rocks. The
award highlights the growing need to break down disciplinary
boundaries between structural geology and sedimentary petrology,
exemplified by the work of Dr. Stephen Laubach and colleagues.
The award alternates between being awarded by the Sedimentary
Geology Division on odd numbered years, and the Structural Geology &
Tectonics Division on even-numbered years, reflecting the focus of
the award on this cycle.
