Congratulations to an EOAS undergraduate, Jonathan Oulton, who has received the Dwornik Award for the best undergraduate oral presentation at the 46th Lunar & Planetary Science Conference in Houston, TX. This is an execeptional performance for an undergrad, as there were 128 student presentations designated as candidates for Dwornik awards. Each candidate was evaulated by multiple judges. Awardees were selected on the basis of: (1) consistent high scores, (2) high rankings relative to other presentations, and (3) written comments.

EOAS Professor Dr. William Landing will be part of this mission, and will be responsible for the collection of atmospheric aerosol samples and rain (and snow) samples to measure the input of these essential trace elements to the Arctic Ocean.
