2023 Logan Medalist

Dr. Sandra L. Kamo (University of Toronto)


“For her fundamental and sustained contributions to the field of high-precision U-Pb geochronology, having contributed hundreds of key ages, always at the very cutting edge of what is achievable, to important studies in Canada and across the globe that address and have tested first-order problems in the Earth sciences: from ancient greenstone terrains to the formation of large layered intrusions, to continental break-up and paleo-continental reconstructions, and to studies of giant meteorite impacts, the timing and rate of mass extinctions, the geological time scale, and fundamental improvements of U-Pb methodologies.”
