PCIGR student awarded AGU Outstanding Student Paper Award

January 2016

PhD student Lauren Harrison recently received an Outstanding Student Paper Award for her talk on “The Hawaiian mantle plume from toe to head along the Northwest Hawaiian Ridge” presented at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

The Outstanding Student Paper Awards (OSPAs) are awarded to promote, recognize and reward undergraduate, Master’s and PhD students for quality research in the geophysical sciences. Each year, sections and focus groups recruit judges to assess and score student oral and poster presentations at meetings. Typically the top 3-5% of presenters in each section/focus group are awarded an OSPA.

Congratulations Lauren!
