UCSB Professor Gets Mountain Named in His Honor


It’s not every day you get a mountain named in your honor. But UC Santa Barbara’s Bruce Luyendyk, a professor emeritus of earth science, can claim exactly that rare accolade. Mount Luyendyk, as the peak is now known, is situated in Antarctica’s remote Fosdick Mountains, a place the tectonics expert knows well from his years conducting field research there. Its new name was proposed by two of his former graduate students.
