The 2023 Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (OSPP) Award is awarded to Philippa Slay for the poster/PICO entitled:
Observed Dynamic Topography and Cenozoic Magmatism of the Eastern Seaboard of Australia (Slay, P.; White, N.; Holdt, M.; Stephenson, S.)
Philippa Slay is a PhD candidate at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. She is supervised by Professor Nicky White. Philippa uses observational data to study the surface expression of mantle dynamics.
Philippa received this award for her presentation on the dynamic topography of the Australian plate. In this study, she uses an observationally-led approach to constrain the residual (i.e., dynamic) topography across the continent. The results presented show positive dynamic topography along Australia’s eastern seaboard and are corroborated by geophysical datasets, Cenozoic volcanism,and geochemical modelling of intraplate basaltic magmatism.
