Graduate Student Tyler Brown Wins AGU Outstanding Student Paper Award

January 12, 2015
Graduate student Tyler Brown (PhD).

Graduate student Tyler Brown (PhD) recently received an Outstanding Student Paper Award for a paper that he presented at the annual Fall American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in San Francisco, titled, “Towards solving the conundrum of fast-spread ocean crust formation: insights from textural analysis of gabbroic rocks from Pito Deep and Hess Deep, East Pacific Rise.”

Only 3–5 percent of student presenters are given an award at what is the largest Earth Sciences meeting in the world with approximately 25,000 attendees. Tyler was one of nine students who received the award in the Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology section. This is the second time Tyler has won the award, having also won the award at the 2012 Fall AGU meeting.

Tyler is advised by Professor Barbara John and Associate Professor Mike Cheadle.
