In 2018, the Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group established a new award, named after C. Henry Emeleus (1930–2017), the internationally renowned igneous petrologist and field geologist (and esteemed member of the Edinburgh Geological Society!). This single award of up to £1000 for fieldwork honours the pioneering work that Henry Emeleus undertook in the Paleogene North Atlantic Igneous Province (primarily Greenland, Ireland and NW Scotland). His highly-respected studies spanned over 60 years and were all underpinned by meticulous field observations.
To be eligible for the award applicants must be UK based, and either:
• registered postgraduate students;
• postdoctoral researchers; or
• university lecturers.
At least 50% of the award should be spent directly on research fieldwork (transport, accommodation and field logistical support).
Application deadline is 28 February 2021 – further details and application form.
