AGU Outstanding Student Presentation: Ali Bramson
Kudos to Ali Bramson, who won an Outstanding Student Paper Award (Planetary Sciences) at the Fall 2013 AGU meeting. Ali's paper was titled, "Thick subsurface water ice in Arcadia Planitia, Mars" (Bramson, Byrne, Putzig, Plaut, Mattson, Holt). According to the AGU web site, "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. It is a great honor for young scientists at the beginning of their careers and the process relies entirely on volunteer judges. Typically the top 3-5% of presenters in each section/focus group are awarded an OSPA and all judged students are provided feedback."
