The 2021 Virtual Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (vOSPP) Award is awarded to Sam Hartharn-Evans for the poster/PICO entitled:
How does stratification affect shoaling Internal Solitary Waves? (Hartharn-Evans, S.; Carr, M.; Stastna, M.; Davies, P. A.)

Sam Hartharn-Evans is currently a second year PhD Researcher at Newcastle University using laboratory flume experiments to investigate Internal Solitary Waves. After graduating with an MSc in Physical Oceanography from Bangor University, Sam moved to study a PhD in Applied Mathematics, supervised by Magda Carr, and funded by the ONE Planet Doctoral Training Programme. His thesis aims to untangle mechanisms by which Internal Solitary Waves interact with sea ice, a timely area of research as the Arctic Ocean undergoes rapid change. Sam’s vPICO poster describes the results of work investigating the behaviour of these Internal Solitary Waves as they propagate upslope in different stratification regimes.
