Earth Day honors


  • Randy Showstack


Earth Day on April 22 has become a time for presenting awards for environmental protection, and this year's awardees include several people and organizations whose activities touch upon geoscience-related issues.

Among the winners of the Goldman Environment Prize is Michal Krav Rk, a hydrologist from Slovakia who led a successful campaign to stop the construction of a proposed 65-m-high dam that had been planned for the Upper Torysa River about 50 km northwest of the city of Kosice.
