 Congratulations to Dr. Mike Arthur.

Dr. Arthur has been selected to receive the 2018 V. M. Goldschmidt Award, the premier award of the Geochemical Society. Mike is recognized for his ground-breaking studies that advanced our understanding the carbon cycle in deep time, especially how stable isotope signals could be read in the rock record. He led a whole cadre of paleoceanographers who also devoted their careers to working on topics from hypoxia, ocean acidification, and mass extinction, from the Archean to the modern.
