Brittany Kruger and Wolfgang Rübsam winners of the Elsevier (EAOG) Research Scholarship 2012

Elsevier Research Scholarship 2012, presented on behalf of the journal Organic Geochemistry and the European Association of Organic Geochemists (EAOG), in its inaugural year 2012 winners:

Brittany Kruger (University of Minnesota, USA) is using 14C and 13C measurements to understand carbon cycling in two large lakes (Lake Malawi, Malawi and Lake Superior, USA) with respect to sedimentation and food chain interactions. She plans to visit Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) as part of her project to perform ?15N analyses.

Wolfgang Rübsam (University of Kiel, Germany) is using a multi proxy approach to study a new Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (OAE) sediment sequence. He plans to use the funds to perform isotope work in collaboration with the Professor Mayer laboratory (University Calgary), including a ?15N analysis to unravel the effect of the event on the primary producing community.
We are delighted to announce Brittany Kruger and Wolfgang Rübsam are the 2012 winners of the Elsevier Research Scholarship.

The Elsevier Research Scholarship is intended to encourage exchange of ideas, expertise and techniques and cultivate the scientific dialogue which Elsevier, Organic Geochemistry and the EAOG believe to be fundamental to the advancement of research. The winners will each receive a prize of €2,500 to assist with their research projects.

Please join us in congratulating Brittany and Wolfgang and wishing them every success in their research projects!
