General information about the Richard H. Jahns Lectures


About the Jahns Lecturer for 2022-23: Vince Cronin

Vince Cronin engages in a broad range of geoscience work. He has served in various capacities in GSA's Environmental and Engineering Geology Division, and is a GSA Fellow. He is also a long-time AEG member. Vince worked for the first Jahns Lecturer, Dr. Jim Slosson, as an engineering geologist and consultant on projects involving landslides, active faulting, flooding, coastal/stream erosion, and resource evaluation in the western US.
Vince is an emeritus professor of geoscience at Baylor University. There and at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, he taught a variety of graduate courses about structural geology, tectonics, and engineering geology, and the core undergraduate courses in physical geology and structural geology. Along with his graduate and undergraduate students, he has used earthquake data, lidar-based geomorphic analysis, GPS geodesy, and field work to locate the ground-surface trace of seismogenic faults.
Vince is the editor of the 11th through 13th editions of the AGI/NAGT Laboratory Manual in Physical Geology (Pearson) and is writing a quantitative primer on plate kinematics. He has contributed to the development of geoethics for about 30 years and currently serves on the executive board of the International Association for Promoting Geoethics (IAPG) as its North American coordinator.
