We are delighted to announce that, today at the 1st International Conference and Exhibition on Underwater Acoustics on Corfu Island, Greece, PanGeo Subsea’s Chief Scientist, Professor Jacques Guigne was awarded the Rayleigh Medal by the Institute of Acoustics. The Institute of Acoustics annually honours people whose contributions to acoustics have been particularly noteworthy. The Rayleigh Medal is the Institute’s premier award, awarded without regard to age to persons of undoubted renown for outstanding contributions to acoustics. The medal is named after John William Strutt, Third Baron Rayleigh (1842 – 1919), a very versatile physicist who conducted both experimental and theoretical research in virtually every branch of the subject. A graduate, fellow and eventually Chancellor of Cambridge University, he was a fellow and president of the Royal Society. His book The Theory of Sound remains a landmark text in the development of acoustics.
Everyone at PanGeo sends our warmest congratulations to Jacques in winning this prestigious award.
