The European Geophysical Society has awarded Giuliano Panza the Beno Gutenberg Medal. Panza, professor of seismology at the University of Trieste and head of the ICTP Structure and Non-Linear Dynamics of the Earth (SAND) programme, is being honoured for his scholarly achievements in earthquake modelling and for advancing international co-operation in earthquake analysis and prediction. The award, established in 1996, is named in honour of the great German-born seismologist who is credited with discovering the Earth's core and helping to explain the physics of continental drift. The award ceremony will take place in Nice, France, on 24 April, during the opening of the XXV General Assembly of the European Geophysical Society.
