The 2017 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards is awarded to Olga Vindušková for the poster entitled:

Olga Vindušková is a last-year PhD student at the Institute for Environmental Studies at the Faculty of Science at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. Her research focuses on soil organic matter accumulation dynamics during ecosystem development after a major disturbance such as mining or landslides. The awarded poster presents the first study of a chronosequence of landslides that provides insight into soil development in Central Europe in the last 13,000 years. This chronosequence is unique by the combination of its large time-scale, sedimentary bedrock and temperate climate.
