After receiving numerous and high quality applications, the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) has awarded three students £1000 each to support their studies and research work. This year, applications poured in from education establishments all over the world including the UK, Italy, the USA, the Netherlands and Nigeria. Given the standard of the competition, the committee found it difficult to make their decision but after much deliberation they decided the following winners: PhD Awards: Jo Miles, University of Bristol, UK - Mapping the potassic footprint of volcanic-hydrothermal systems. Dario Solano, University of Miami, USA - Differential subsidence analysis over the Collective Transport System (Metro) in Mexico City. MSc Award: Imam Purwadi, ITC, University of Twente, the Netherlands - Mapping iron-bearing mineral for evaluating the environmental benefit of REE mining plans: a case study in abandoned mine sites, Indonesia.
