Professor Emerita B. Charlotte Screiber

Professor Emerita B. Charlotte Schreiber passed away on 17 July 2020 after a brief illness.  Retired from Queens College CUNY since 1993, Dr. Schreiber remained professionally active until her death. She is most widely known for her groundbreaking work on Messinian evaporites in the Mediterranean Basin, on which she continued to work up through recent years. Other 21st century research ranged from Martian evaporites to Chinese travertines, from the Miocene of Lake Mead to the Devonian of Canada.  Her work inevitably involved interdisciplinary and international colleagues, many of whom she personally brought together to address new questions and ideas.

Additionally, memorial donations for Charlotte Schreiber can be reported via an email to awgftreasurer@awg.org.
