The Liu Tungsheng Distinguished Career Medal for distinguished service to the international community in Quaternary science
INQUA invites nominations for the Liu Tungsheng Distinguished Career Medal, first awarded in 2011, which recognizes outstanding service to the international community in Quaternary science. The medal will be awarded at the INQUA Congress to be held at Nagoya, Japan in 2015.
Professor Liu, a former member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and research professor at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Beijing, China, made outstanding contributions to Quaternary paleoenvironmental research, particularly with respect to Chinese loess sequences.
He had a long record of service promoting Quaternary research and provided significant leadership to national and international Quaternary organizations. The Liu Tungsheng Distinguished Career Medal will be awarded to a senior Quaternary scientist who has made numerous, distinguished, and significant contributions that have clearly advanced Quaternary science through service to the international community.
