The 2015 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award is awarded to Tim van Peer for the poster/PICO entitled:
Revised Late Oligocene to Early Miocene magnetic stratigraphy recorded by drift sediments at Sites U1405 and U1406, IODP Expedition 342 (Newfoundland, NW Atlantic) (van Peer, T.; Xuan,C.; Wilson, P.; Liebrand, D.; Lippert, P.)

Tim van Peer is a NERC funded Ph.D. student at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton at the University of Southampton, UK, under supervision of dr. Chuang Xuan, Prof. Paul Wilson and dr. Peter Lippert (University of Utah). His project focuses on Oligocene-Miocene palaeomagnetic and environmental magnetic change in the north-western Atlantic, using expanded sedimentary sequences recovered during Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 342 at sites U1405 and U1406. Tim’s poster presented the revised spliced magnetic stratigraphies for both sites, which are fundamental for future studies.
