The 2014 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award is awarded to Krisztina Kelevitz for the poster/PICO entitled:

Long period GPS waveforms. What can GPS bring to Earth seismic velocity models? (Kelevitz, K.; Houlie, N.; Boschi, L.; Nissen-Meyer, T.; Giardini, D.; Rothacher, M.)

Krisztina Kelevitz is a PhD student since 2013 at the Earth Sciences Department at ETH Zürich (Switzerland), working at integrating geodetic (GPS) measurements in various seismological applications. The PhD project focuses on 1) establishing a GPS waveform database of large earthquakes and 2) including GPS data into seismic tomography.
The EGU 2014 poster presents the first results of the Hokkaido earthquake (25/09/2003, Mw=8.0). The comparisons of GPS waveforms with broadband seismometer and synthetic seismograms show that GPS data have a potential to be used for the improvement of Earth seismic velocity models.
