The American Geophysical Union (AGU) has awarded an Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) to current EPS graduate student, Nate Lindsey. His presentation was titled “Crossing the shoreline with DAS: Photonic seismology in Monterey Bay using the MARS cable”. The corresponding paper is available online here. For more on the project with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), see this article.
The Outstanding Student Presentation Awards (OSPAs) promote, recognize and reward undergraduate, Master’s and PhD students for quality research in the Earth and space sciences. It is a great honor for young scientists at the beginning of their careers. The process relies entirely on volunteer judges. Typically the top 3-5% of presenters in each Section are awarded an OSPA and all judged students are provided feedback.
