Seismic Sensors in Orbit
The Harry Elderfield Student Paper Award is presented annually and recognizes an exemplary manuscript by a graduate student working toward their Ph.D.
This award was named in honor of Professor Harry Elderfield, who determined how different water masses in the ocean could be identified from rare Earth materials. Elderfield also established a mechanism for distinguishing between changes caused by ocean temperatures and those cause by ice sheet changes in oxygen isotope records. The Elderfield Student Paper Award is presented at the Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology section event during the AGU Fall Meeting.
