Frank Dale Morgan obtained his BSc (math/physics) in 1970 and his MSc (theoretical solid state physics) in 1972, both from the University of the West Indies, Trinidad, where he was a lecturer in physics from 1970-75, and later a research fellow in the Seismic Research Unit. He completed a PhD in geophysics in 1981 at MIT. He is currently a professor of geophysics in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science and is associated with the Earth Resources Laboratory at MIT. His current interests are in rock physics, geoelectromagnetism, applied seismology, inverse theory, environmental and engineering geophysics, electrochemistry and electronic instrumentation.[1]

Honorable Mention (Geophysics) 1994

B. Wurmstich and F. Morgan received Honorable Mention (Geophysics) for their paper Modeling of streaming potential responses caused by oil well pumping.[2]
