"I'm humbled by this extraordinary award," said Wilson. "I'm gratified to hear that my work in geomorphometry has been useful to other great scholars and researchers seeking to make new contributions in this area, and I'm honored to be in the company of my distinguished colleagues who have previously received this award," he added.
