Bureau researchers Ramon Treviño and Tip Meckel have received the 2018 John C. Frye Memorial Award in Environmental Geology for their 2017 report Geological CO2 Sequestration Atlas of Miocene Strata, Offshore Texas State Waters (RI0283). The award, co-sponsored by the Geological Society of America (GSA) and Association of American State Geologists (AASG), is given for the best publication in the field of environmental geology published by a state geological survey or by GSA during the past 3 years. Editors Trevino and Meckel were presented with the award at the GSA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, in November. 

Publications nominated for the Frye award successfully “identify a geologically based environmental issue, provide sound and substantive information pertinent to the problem, relate geology to the issue, and present information directly usable by geologists, other professionals such as land-use planners and engineers, and ideally also by informed laypersons.” The book is available from The Bureau Store.
