The ASU Center for Meteorite Studies is pleased to announce that Ingrid Daubar, a graduate student at The University of Arizona, is the recipient of the 2013 Nininger Meteorite Award, and Emily Pringle, a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis, received an Honorable Mention for the award.
The Nininger Meteorite Award recognizes outstanding student achievement in the meteoritical sciences as embodied by an original research paper.
Ingrid’s paper, “The current martian cratering rate,” reports on the discovery of 248 dated impact sites known to have formed on Mars within the last few decades.
Emily’s paper, “Redox state during core formation on asteroid 4-Vesta”, presented research that coupled high-precision measurements of silicon isotopic ratios in achondrites with models of Si behavior during metal-silicate differentiation, to aid in understanding planetary core formation.
Each submission was reviewed by a panel of experts from a broad array of fields in meteoritical science.
