New Zealand scientist wins international award
11 Mar 2008
A New Zealand scientist has won an international award for research of the Wanganui Basin.
Professor Tim Naish won the James Lee Wilson Award for his geological re-evaluation of the Wanganui Basin which was judged as an example of ''elegant science.''
The research presents evidence for more than 50 fluctuations in global sea-level in the last two million years.
Administered by the Society for Sedimentary Geology, the award will be presented in San Antonio, Texas, in April 2008.
Professor Naish was recently appointed director of Victoria University's Antarctic Research Centre. His research results were published in leading international journals and in 2006 he was awarded the Geological Society of New Zealand's highest honour, the McKay Hammer.
