Dr Colin Waters of the British Geological Survey has been awarded the title and status of Honorary Professor in the Department of Geology from 1 May 2016 to 30 April 2021.

Dr Colin Waters is currently Secretary of the Anthropocene Working Group of the International Commission on Stratigraphy and is highly active in Anthropocene research, a theme that has attained an extraordinary academic and public profile over the past few years. He is lead author, for instance, of the recent high-impact Science paper on the Anthropocene and has a central role (and is highly regarded) in co-ordinating activities of the Working Group members, who include Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen. Dr Waters will help achieve a critical mass of Anthropocene workers based around the University (which includes our Professors Jan Zalasiewicz and Mark Williams), to help develop, and exploit the research (and teaching) opportunities of this remarkable, and growing concept.
