Dr. Gary Lash receives award

Dr. Gary Lash was the recent recipient of the Frank Kottlowski Memorial Award at the annual American Association of Petroleum Geologists meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa.

This award is presented to the author of an oral presentation that is judged to be the “best oral paper” in any EMD-sponsored technical session at an AAPG annual meeting.

Dr. Lash is a Geosciences professor at SUNY Fredonia, where his research involves the Devonian black shales of our region, including the Marcellus, Utica and the Rhinestreet. He is internationally known for making the Marcellus Shale a household name.
