Earth & Environment Graduate Student Sarah Foster was recently award the highly competitive National Defense Science and Engineering (NDSEG) Graduate Fellowship.
The fellowship will support Foster’s Ph.D. work for the next three years starting this September.
Foster is a Ph.D. candidate working with Assistant Professor Robinson “Wally” Fulweiler on coastal biogeochemistry.
The meeting will take place from Wednesday April 30 to Friday May 2nd.
On Thursday May 1, Aderhold will be presenting a talk titled “Seismic slip distribution of large inter- and intra- plate oceanic strike-slip earthquakes.”
Then on Friday, Prof. Abercrombie will be presenting a poster titled “Improving stress drop measurements from EGF – scaling and stress release in the Darfield-Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake sequence.”
Prof. Abercrombie is also the co-author of two other presentations concerning earthquakes in Nevada and in New Zealand.

Earth & Environment PhD student Taejin Park published an article in the journal Remote Sensing. The article is titled “Allometric scaling and resource limitations model of tree heights: Part 3. Model optimization and testing over continental China.” The article presents results that show the optimized ASRL model is capable of satisfactorily retrieving tree heights over continental China at a range of spatial scales.
