Christopher Hamilton Receives NASA Early Career Fellowship

Dr. Christopher Hamilton received a 2015 NASA Fellowship for Early Career Researchers, which was established to facilitate the integration of new planetary science researchers into funding programs and advanced positions. The award included $100,000 in support of establishing "Precision Geodetic Constraints for Terrestrial Analog Studies of Planetary Surface Processes." The award was used to purchase Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) survey equipment through Trimble's University Partnership Program. The Trimble DGPS equipment was used to help support Dr. Hamilton's 2015 field campaign in Iceland (see Icelandic Analogs to Planetary Volcanism).
