The 2012 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award is awarded to Camille Clerc for the poster/PICO entitled:

From crustal thinning to mantle exhumation: what the Pyrenean breccia formations tell us (Camille, C.; Lagabrielle, Y.; Reynaud, J.-Y.; Boulvais, P.; Bousquet, R.; Lahfid, A.; Vauchez, A.; Mahé, S.)

Camille Clerc is a PhD student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris and at the Géosciences Montpellier Laboratory under supervision of Yves Lagabrielle and Christian Chopin. As a young geologist I study the structural and thermal evolution of the Cretaceous hyper-extended domain inverted in the Pyrenean Orogen. My approach implies fieldwork, petrography and geochemistry to determine the sedimentary, structural and metamorphic evolution of the North Pyrenean basins. Paleo-thermometry by Raman spectroscopy of the carbonaceous mater allows for a precise characterization of the high temperature metamorphism accompanying the exhumation of sub-continental mantle.
