Short citation at year of election

Lambeck's numerous contributions to Geophysics are highlighted by two particular milestones, analyses of satellite orbits to obtain the Earth's global gravity pattern and tidal deformations, and studies of the rotation of the Earth, summarised in his monograph on this subject. Lambeck's papers are characterised by rigorous, quantitative analyses that have made them reference sources and foundations for subsequent developments in mechanical problems of the Earth and planets.
