Boswell Wing, associate professor of geological sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder (USA), will receive the 2022 John Hayes Award from the GS. The award is given to a mid-career scientist for outstanding accomplishments that draw together multiple fields of investigation to advance biogeochemical science. It was created in 2017 by the Organic Geochemistry Division and a group of friends, colleagues, and students of John Hayes. Prof. Wing is recognized for contributions to science and mentorship at the intersection of isotopic geochemistry, microbiology, and studies of Earth's fluid envelope that have shaped the fabric of our knowledge of Earth as a biogeochemical system. Presentation of the 2022 award was delayed following the pandemic.
