Eldridge Moores, a professor emeritus of geology, has been awarded the title of UC Davis distinguished professor emeritus. This title is awarded annually by the UC Davis Emeriti Association on the basis of outstanding contributions following retirement in the traditional areas of teaching, research and service.

Since his retirement in 2003, Moores served for four years as vice president of the International Union of Geological Sciences and circled the globe 16 times over to encourage international cooperation in the earth sciences and the sustainable use of resources.

He served as a member of the University of California President’s Science and Mathematics Initiative; helped establish an earth science program at Napa College; and has informed international, national and regional officials, as well as the public, about hazards including earthquakes, landslides, floods and tsunamis.

Moores is engaged in a multi-year effort supported by the National Science Foundation and the Geological Society of America to increase offerings in geoscience nationwide.

Moores’ scholarly accomplishments since retirement include publishing the second edition of his co-authored textbook “Structural Geology,” and his co-edited popular science book, “Bedrock: Writings on the Wonders of Geology,” which the Wall Street Journal picked as one of the five best science books. He has given many lectures to academics and the public and is the recipient of numerous awards.

Past award recipients include Wayne Thiebaud, professor emeritus of art; Charles E. Hess, professor emeritus of plant science; and Alex McCalla, professor emeritus of agricultural and resource economics.
