Three Earth Sciences students won Outstanding Student Presentation Awards from the American Geophysical Union. These prestigious awards are only granted to the top 5% of student participants at the conference, as judged by professional scientists in each discipline. The winners are:
Michalea King (Earth Sciences/Byrd Center PhD candidate) for her talk, "Greenland-wide Glacier Response to Runoff and Retreat: Evaluating Outlet Glacier Changes on Monthly to Multi-year Scales"
Amelia Nelson (Earth Sciences MS student) for her poster, "Heterogeneity in River-Groundwater Mixing, Microbiology, and Geochemistry in an Alpine Riverbed during Baseflow"
Emma Oti (Earth Sciences PhD candidate) for her talk, "Using X-ray computed tomography to estimate hydrate saturation in sediment cores from Green Canyon 955 Gulf of Mexico"
Congratulations Michalea, Amelia, and Emma!
