The 2009 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to João Trabucho Alexandre for the poster/PICO entitled:
Ocean circulation as mechanism and Pacific nutrients as fuel for OAE 2 (Trabucho Alexandre, J.; Tuenter, E.; Henstra, G. A.; van der Zwan, K. J.; van de Wal, R. S. W.; Dijkstra, H. A.; de Boer, P. L.)

João Trabucho Alexandre is a PhD student at the Faculty of Earth Sciences of the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands. He studies Mesozoic marine sediments and his research deals with organic-rich fine grained facies in particular. The research is supervised by Poppe L. de Boer. The poster presented at EGU 2009 shows how an estuarine circulation pattern with introduction of nutrient-rich water from the Pacific into the Atlantic can explain the observed characteristics of sediments associated with OAE 2.
