Zoltan Hajnal wins Canadian Geophysical Union's highest honour

Zoltan Hajnal, professor emeritus in the University of Saskatchewan's Department of Geological Sciences, has been awarded the 2013 Tuzo Wilson Medal by the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU), that organizations highest honour.

The award recognizes the outstanding contribution Hajnal, an internationally respected seismologist, has made to the field of geophysics in Canada. Head of the department, Jim Merriam, gave the citation address at the award ceremony, noting how Hajnal and fellow professor Don Gendzwill established the first geophysics field school in Canada, just one example of Hajnal's ingenuity in the discipline.
