南大沈树忠院士获地层学国际最高金奖

Is the first Asian scientist to receive this award

Southern News Network (correspondent Qi Qi reporter Tan Jie) At the 3rd International Stratigraphy Conference held in Milan, Italy on July 4th, Academician Shen Shuzhong of Nanjing University won the International Gold Medal of Stratigraphy (ICS Medal). The award was established by the International Strata Commission in 2004 and is awarded every four years. Each time one person wins the prize, only four scientists have won the award in the world. Academician Shen Shuzhong is the fifth and the first to receive this award. Asian scientist.

The award's mission is to reward scientists who have made outstanding achievements in the field of international stratigraphy and have made outstanding contributions to the study of global stratigraphy. The highest gold medal in international stratigraphy is nominated globally, compiled by a dedicated jury, submitted to the international strata committee for discussion and voting, and finally selected the winners.

At the awarding ceremony of the day, Academician David Harper, Chairman of the International Stratigraphic Committee, presented Shen Shuzhong with a certificate and a gold medal. He introduced in the award speech that Shen Shuzhong is a world-renowned stratigrapher, paleontologist, brachiopod and dental animal research expert, and has made important contributions in establishing global chronostratigraphic boundaries. He served as the International Stratigraphic Commission Permian. For nearly eight years, the club's chairman has made outstanding contributions to the development of the Permian biostratigraphy, the establishment of stratigraphic sequences and global comparisons, and the study of extinction at the end of the Permian.

xx沉树忠长期致力于二叠纪的研究,并与美国,俄罗斯,英国,德国,日本,澳大利亚,丹麦,缅甸,巴基斯坦,伊朗等国家开展国际合作,引领世界二叠纪研究。在生物地层学,化学。在地层学,年代地层学,古地理重建和生物多样性进化模式方面已经取得了一些开创性的研究成果。他喜欢野外的地质工作。他曾五次进入西藏进行科学研究,在喜马拉雅山脉建立了高分辨率二叠纪三叠纪地层和地球化学剖面,构建了南部高纬度地区二叠纪大规模灭绝的终点。模式。他在中国大部分省份和地区进行了地质调查和标本采集,并发表了一系列重要着作。
