Andrew Wilcox, a UM professor and chair of the Department of Geosciences, recently was named a Fellow of the Geological Society of America.

This prestigious honor is awarded to geoscientists "in recognition of a sustained record of distinguished contributions to the geosciences and the Geological Society of America through such avenues as publications, applied research, teaching, administration of geological programs, contributing to the public awareness of geology, leadership of professional organizations and taking on editorial, bibliographic and library responsibilities."

Wilcox was selected for the honor by his distinguished peers and previous GSA Fellows. In selecting him, geoscientist nominator Ellen Wohl wrote: "Andrew Wilcox’s applied research in fluvial geomorphology builds from fundamental research on hydrology, hydraulics and sediment dynamics to examine questions relevant to societal management of rivers, including dam removal, environmental flows, the effects of mining contaminants and numerical modeling of vegetation-sediment interactions in the context of changing river flows."

Congratulations, Andrew!
