John Dearing wins RGS award

dearingjCongratulations to our long-time Focus 4 leader and former SSC and EXCOM member, John Dearing, who has been awarded the prestigious Murchison Award (2014) by the Royal Geographical Society (RGS).

John was chosen to receive the award in recognition of publications he led, which have "contributed to the understanding of environmental change".

 "Over more than three decades, John’s research has used long-term perspectives gained from analysis of lake sediments to address the problem of environmental degradation. More recently he has used the records to understand the underlying dynamics of our modern social-ecological systems, like river basins, lake systems and deltas." (University of Southampton, 9 June 2014)
