Congratulations to two eminent geologists who have experience with  geysers.
Some of you will remember Dr. Susan Kieffer, who did a lot of research  
regarding eruption mechanics while observing Beehive, Old Faithful (some of 
that  in association with Rick Hutchinson). Sue has been awarded as the 2014 
recipient  of the Penrose Medal of the Geological Society of America. The  
Penrose Medal was established in 1927 by R.A.F. Penrose, Jr., to be awarded in  
recognition of eminent research in pure geology, for outstanding original  
contributions or achievements that mark a major advance in the science of  
geology. (Dr. 
Donald E. White received this award a number of years  ago.)
Dr.  Robin W. Renaut, of the University of Saskatchewan, has contributed to 
GOSA as a  co-author of articles about the geysers at Lake Bogoria, Kenya. 
Robin is the  2014 recipient of the GSA's Israel C. Russell Award, the 
annual award of the  Society's Limnogeology Division.
I  am honored to be at least a bit acquainted with both.
Scott  Bryan
