EMRP Earth Magnetism & Rock Physics
The 2019 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Award is awarded to Leonie Pick for the poster/PICO entitled:
Historical geomagnetic storm drivers determined exclusively from ground-based magnetometer measurements (Pick, L.; Effenberger, F.; Zhelavskaya, I.; Korte, M.)

Leonie Pick is a PhD candidate at the University of Potsdam and conducts research at section 2.3 “Geomagnetism” of GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, Germany. Her research project is embedded within the priority program “Dynamic Earth” of the German Research Foundation, DFG, and lies at the intersection of geomagnetism and space physics. Specifically, she analyzes the centennial-long record of global geomagnetic observatory measurements with regard to the evolution of electric current systems in the magnetosphere.
The awarded PICO presentation demonstrates that the ground-based geomagnetic disturbance field contains statistically meaningful information on the type of geomagnetic storm drivers.
