Nick Eyles, professor in the department of physical and environmental sciences at Scarborough and in the department of geology at St.George, has just been awarded the 2012 Geosciences in the Media Award from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the world’s largest professional geological society. The award is presented for notable journalistic achievement in any medium, which contributes to public understanding of geology, energy resources or the technology of oil and gas exploration.

Eyles advised and appeared on the CBC documentaries Geologic Journey and Geologic Journey II, which explore geology around the globe. Aside from numerous scientific articles, he has also written two popular books, Ontario Rocks and Canada Rocks: The Geologic Journey.

The award will be presented at the annual convention in Long Beach California next April.
