The 2014 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Awards is awarded to Helene A. Kraft for the poster/PICO entitled:

Central-east Greenland’s lithospheric structure from surface wave tomography and receiver functions (Helene A. Kraft)

Helene Kraft is a PhD at the Insitute of Geosciences and Natural Research Management at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark under the supervision of Hans Thybo. She is a seismologist focusing on the lithospheric structure of Central-Eastern Greenland in her PhD-project. The main objectives of this project are to understand the processes behind the recent substantial uplift around the North Atlantic ocean and to link them to prominent tectonic features and topography and derive knowledge about the crustal isostatic balance. The awarded poster presents a receiver function study and Rayleigh wave tomography results from a temporary array installed in the study area.
