RICHLAND, Wash. — The Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) has awarded Kevin Rosso, senior research scientist at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, their Mineralogical Society of America Award for 2004. The MSA Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the entire field of geosciences and is awarded in recognition of outstanding published contributions to the science of mineralogy by individuals near the beginning of their professional careers.

The recipient of the MSA Award receives a certificate and is made a Life Fellow of the Society.

Rosso is well recognized for his work to creatively address long-standing problems in mineral surface chemistry related to reactivity and electron exchange at the mineral-water interface. He earned a doctorate in geological sciences from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1998 and joined PNNL as a full-time research scientist that same year.
