Professor WU Fuyuan was elected to Fellow of Geological Society of America (GSA) in 2012.
Society Fellowship is an honor bestowed on the best of our profession by election at the spring GSA Council meeting. GSA members are nominated by existing GSA Fellows in recognition of their distinguished contributions to the geosciences 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.
GSA’s newly elected Fellows were recognized at the 2012 GSA Annual Meeting Awards Ceremony on Monday, 5 November, at the Charlotte Convention Center.
TheGSAis a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of the geosciences. The society was founded in New York in 1888. The stated mission of GSA is "to advance the geosciences, to enhance the professional growth of its members, and to promote the geosciences in the service of humankind". Its main activities are sponsoring scientific meetings and publishing scientific literature, particularly the journals Geological Society of America Bulletin (commonly called "GSA Bulletin") and Geology. A more recent publication endeavor is the online-only science journal Geosphere. In February 2009, GSA began publishing Lithosphere. GSA's monthly news and science magazine, GSA Today, is open access online.
