WHOI Geologist Named to Coveted Fellowship

WOODS HOLE – A scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Henry Dick, a senior scientist at WHOI who began work there in 1975, was elected as a fellow for “seminal contributions toward understanding abyssal peridotites and their importance for understanding the Earth’s upper mantle.”

Dick’s research focuses primarily on how the Earth’s crust is formed at ocean ridges.

He is among 391 members awarded the honor this year by AAAS. Fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a rosette pin on February 18, 2017 as part of the AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston.

In 2011, Dick was honored with the American Geophysical Union Harry H. Hess Medal for outstanding achievements in research of the constitution and evolution of Earth and other planets.

The AAAS fellowship program began in 1874.
