Honorary Degree for GEES Geologist
Professor Lynne Frostick (Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences) will be awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Royal Holloway, University of London, in July 2014 for services to research and leadership in British Geology.
Much of Lynne’s research sits at the intersection of physical geography and geology and her reputation in the latter field saw her elected as President of the Geological Society (2008-2011).
The Geology Department closed at Hull in 1979 after the University Grants Committee’s national review of geology provision in Universities.
However, this award to Lynne comes at a time when the Department of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences is fast-developing its Geology and Earth Sciences teaching and research once more.
