Description: Murchison, was elected to the Society on 3 December 1824, was a Scottish geologist who famously travelled in Russia between 1840 and 1845 to study its Palaeozoic rocks. His studies in Russia resulted in his defining a third geological system – the Permian, named after Perm – to add to the two he had already classified – the Silurian and the Devonian.
