UMaine Professor Mayewski to Receive Prestigious Seligman Crystal

Prof. Paul Mayewski, director of the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, will travel to Norway this weekend to join an exclusive fraternity of esteemed climate scientists to receive the International Glaciological Society’s (IGS) Seligman Crystal.

Since the award was first presented in 1963 — to its namesake, the late British glaciologist Gerald Seligman — only 30 Seligman Crystals have been awarded, including just five in this century.

The crystal, according to the IGS Web site, “shall be awarded from time to time to one who has made an outstanding scientific contribution to glaciology so that the subject is now enriched.”
