for Outstanding Contributions to the Geology of Utah
09 November 15
The Utah Geological Association and the Utah Geological Survey are pleased to announce the 2015 Lehi Hintze Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Geology of Utah will be awarded to Douglas A. Sprinkel. Doug will be honored at the
November 9th, 2015 UGA luncheon meeting, where he will speak about Late Neoproterozoic Uplift, Basin Inversion, and Subsequent Reactivation in the Uinta Mountains, Northeastern Utahâ€”an Example of their Role in Middle Jurassic Deposition. We invite all UGA members and others interested in Utah geology to attend the luncheon and celebrate Dougâ€™s long and distinguished career.
The Lehi Hintze Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Geology of Utah was established in 2003, with the first recipient being the late Dr. Lehi F. Hintze. Lehi Hintze spent a lifetime dedicated to studying, mapping, writing and teaching about the geology of Utah. Dr. Hintze was a Professor of Geology at Brigham Young University, and also spent almost 10 years mapping for the Utah Geological Survey. The Lehi Hintze Award was established through efforts of the Utah Geological Survey and Utah Geological Association to recognize
outstanding contributions to the understanding of Utah geology.
