The 2022 Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (OSPP) Award is awarded to Kira Musiyachenko for the poster/PICO entitled:

Secular change in the age of TTG sources during the Archean from in-situ Sr and Hf isotope analysis by LA-MC-ICPMS (Musiyachenko, K.; Smit, M. A.; Caton, S.; Emo, R. B.; Kielman-Schmitt, M.; Kooijman, E.; Scherstén, A.; Halla, J.; Bleeker, W.; Hoffmann, J. E.; Pandey, O. P.; Ravindran, A.; Maltese, A.; Mezger, K.)

Kira Musiyachenko is a PhD student at the University of British Columbia (Canada) working with Dr. Matthijs Smit. In her research project she focuses on the petrological and geodynamic processes that shaped the lithosphere of the Archean Earth. She studies the lithosphere evolution from the isotope geochemical perspective applied to both continental crust and lithospheric mantle. In the work presented and awarded at the EGU 2022 she reported preliminary results revealing the secular change in the TTG production mechanism in the Paleoarchean observed in the Sr and Hf isotopic records.
