Institution, Woods Hole, Mass., "for development of the new field of 'chemical geodynamics' through the use of the chemical and isotopic signature of mantle-derived samples to map and constrain the dynamical evolution of the Earth's interior." The medal was established by the bequest of Arthur L. Day and has been awarded since 1972.

DANIEL GIRAUD ELLIOT MEDAL a medal and a prize of $15,000 awarded every four years in recognition of a most meritorious, recently published work in zoology or paleontology goes to JENNIFER A.
