It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Distinguished Professor Emeritus and world-renowned geologist (among many other accolades) Eldridge Moores. Dr. Moores died unexpectedly Sunday, October 28 while on a geology field trip at the age of 80. A statement from U.C. Davis about Dr. Moores can be found here. Dr. Moores was a contributor and major part of the AEG Geology of the Cities of the World, Sacramento edition, and the updated volume will be dedicated to Dr. Moores in early 2019.
