Dietrich Welte mit Sidney Powers Award ausgezeichnet

-Bild-

Dietrich Welte erhielt anlässlich der Jahrestagung der „American Association of Petroleum Geologists“ (AAPG) deren höchste wissenschaftliche Auszeichnung, den „Sidney Powers Award“. AAPG zählt mit weltweit ca. 35000 Mitgliedern zu den größten und wichtigsten internationalen geowissenschaftlichen  Vereinigungen. In der Laudatio heißt es sinngemäß “…das Verständnis dynamischer Erdprozesse (Geoprozesse), und nicht nur die Erfassung des statischen Endresultats waren das Hauptforschungsziel von Dietrich Welte. Seine bahnbrechenden Publikationen sind wissenschaftliche Klassiker.“

Gratulation! http://www.aapg.org/explorer/2012/10oct/awards1012.cfm

MUSCAT The Rector and the Department of Applied Geosciences of GUtech have welcomed Professor Dr. Sierd Cloetingh, Royal Netherlands Academy Professor of Earth Sciences at the Utrecht University (Netherlands) last week. Professor Cloetingh gave a presentation entitled: "Integrated Solid Earth Sciences - challenges and perspectives" to AGEO students and GUtech staff. Professor Cloetingh is a well-known geoscientist who has published more than 300 scientific papers in international peer-reviewed geosciences journals. He is also editor in chief of Global and Planetary Change and member of the editorial board of Tectonophysics. Professor Cloetingh has also been promotor of more than 65 PhD students of 18 different nationalities. He has received honorary doctorates from five European universities and numerous honours and rewards such as the Holmes Medal, the honorary membership of the European Geosciences Union, Fellow and Honorary Fellow of the American Geophysical Union. Prof. Cloetingh is also President of the International Lithosphere Programme (ILP), Vice-President of the European Academy of Sciences and member of the European Research Council (ERC).

To discuss future scientific cooperation, Professor Cloetingh has been invited by the AGEO department and the Department of Geosciences of RWTH Aachen University, who have also organized a one week field trip around the North of Oman including a large number of sites of geological interest, such as the exposed crust/mantle transition and the ophiolites in Wadi Al Abbyad, carbonate sequences and source rocks and the uplifted coastal terraces along the Omani coastline, an area that is currently part of a tsunami research project conducted by Prof. Dr. Goesta Hoffmann. Prof. Goesta and Prof. Wiekert Visser of the AGEO Department have conducted the field-excursion along with Prof. Dr. Peter Kukla, Energy & Mineral Resources Group and Director of the Geological Institute at RWTH Aachen University. "We have developed plans for a long-term strategic cooperation embedded in the international lithosphere programme. Specifically the setup of a thematic research programme "TOPO-OMAN", affiliated to the successful TOPO-EUROPE programme on coupled deep Earth and surface processes with implications for georessources and natural hazards has been discussed. Additionally research training programmes, including workshops and short courses as well as the exchange of staff form an integral part of this collaborative effort." said Prof. Peter Kukla.

On Tuesday the 18th March Prof. Cloetingh will give a presentation entitled "Tectonics of sedimentary basins" to members of the Geological Society of Oman in the PDO Oil and Gas Exhibition Center at 5 pm.
