The Schlumberger Medal recognizes scientific excellence in mineralogy and its applications. It is my great pleasure to present this to you tonight, Dr Tim Holland, for your outstanding work in the gathering, calculation and application of a consistent set of thermodynamic data, generally referred to as THERMOCALC, and the application of this to evaluate and predict phase relationships in complex natural systems. To appreciate the originality of your research, it is essential to stress ‘consistent set of thermodynamic data’ and ‘complex natural systems’ in the previous sentence. Your work has not just been to apply thermodynamics to mineral data, but...
