Successful Marsden Recipients
Congratulations to our staff who were successful in the highly competitive Marsden Fund. The School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences had a successful round this year with three of our staff receiving an award. These staff were:

- Dr Brian Anderson received a Marsden Fast Start grant for his research into how long glaciers can keep advancing in a warming world.
- Associate Professor Tim Little was awarded an Associate Investigator award for a grant led by Professor David Prior from the University of Otago. This research will be about the episodic creep at the brittle-ductile transition during the seismic cycle of great earthquakes.
