Bob Hazen was the recipient of the 2016 Roebling Medal, at this years annual meeting of the Geological Society of America Meeting in Denver, CO, USA. This is the highest award of the Mineralogical Society of America, which is given for “scientific eminence as represented primarily by scientific publication of outstanding original research in mineralogy”. Specifically, he is being recognized for his ongoing and exceptional work on the mineralogical evidence for the evolving relationship between the geosphere and biosphere. This work has spanned many years and publications (both articles and books) and is foundational to our project's goals and is supported by the Keck Foundation.

Congratulations Bob!
