Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Headed to AGU this year and interested in giving back to the community and seeing some awesome young scientists at work? Consider becoming an Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) judge for session EP31D: Catching Cosmic Rays: Advances in Using Cosmogenic Nuclides to Quantify Earth Surface Processes II Posters. See session abstract below.

To sign up to be a judge just follow this link and make sure to sign up to judge presentations in session EP31D. Note: Volunteer OSPA judges must be non-student AGU members attending Fall Meeting. 

Session Abstract:

Over the past 40 years, cosmogenic radionuclide (CRN) geochemistry has transformed the study of Earth surface processes, making it possible to date the incision of the world’s deepest canyons, derive basin-wide erosion rates from the world’s largest catchments, reconstruct the history of glaciers at high latitudes, and quantify weathering rates on rapidly eroding hillslopes. Novel CRN approaches have the potential to provide new insights into the varied processes that shape Earth’s surface, ranging in scale from local to global. In this session, we invite contributions that advance the application of CRN for quantifying Earth surface processes, including, but not limited to: paleoclimate reconstruction, quantification of sediment storage dynamics, rapid or long-term landscape change, applications and/or cross-calibration of multiple nuclide and/or multiple mineral systems, production rate calibration, and improved laboratory or measurement techniques.
