Former Creston resident earns international recognition
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Dick Arnold, 83, of West Lafayette, Ind., formerly of Creston, has earned the 2013 Lomonosov Gold Medal for 30 years of domestic and international work teaching about soil formation, erosion and conservation.
Conferred by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the medal is that group’s highest honor, given to two scientists each year — one Russian and one international honoree.
Arnold’s award cites him “for his outstanding contribution to the development of theoretical and applied soil science, and modeling the behavior of soils in different landscapes of the world.”
