2020 GJI Student Author Award

Congratulations go to one of SGEES' PhD students, Kenny Graham, who has been selected as a joint recipient of the 2020 GJI Student Author Award by the Editorial Boad of Geophysical Journal International.

Designed to recognise and acknowledge the 'best papers' submitted to Geophysical Journal International from young scientists in the field, manuscripts are short listed by our high profile Editorial Board and highlighted on the Geophysical Journal International homepage.

The winners receive a cash prize (£750 = just over $1400NZD) and a certificate, and acknowledgements are made at the American Geophysical Union and European Geosciences Union General Assembly meetings.

Kenny will be receiving the reward for his article "Spatio-temporal analysis of seismic anisotropy associated with the Cook Strait and Kaikōura earthquake sequences in New Zealand” (Kenny M Graham, Martha K Savage, Richard Arnold, Hubert J Zal, Tomomi Okada; Geophys.J.Int. (2020) 223, 1987-2008).

He will be sharing the 2020 award with Daniele Brandt, for her article "Giant Gaussian process models of geomagnetic palaeosecular variation: a directional outlook” (Daniele Brandt, Catherine Constable, Marcia Ernesto; Geophys.J.Int. (2020) 222, 1526-1541)

An announcement about the prize has been posted to the journal website here. Both articles are also now freely available to all readers.
