Bowen, Dufek, and Shelly Receive 2012 James B. Macelwane Medals: Citation



Joe Dufek is an extraordinary young scientist whose research is characterized by deep intellectual content and rigor. He has contributed significantly to our understanding of the dynamics and petrology of magmatic systems, and to physical volcanology, tectonophysics, and planetary volcanism. Even at such an early stage in his career, Joe's contributions have transformed our understanding of magma chamber dynamics and the physics of volcanic eruption.
