The 2016 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Award is awarded to Ariadna Salabarnada Roset for the poster/PICO entitled:

Obliquity paced contourite cyclicity in Antarctic sediments from the Wilkes Land (Site U1356) during Late Oligocene (Salabarnada, A.; Escutia, C.; Nelson, C.H.; Roehl, U.; Jimenez-Espejo, F.; Evangelinos, D.; Ikehara, M.; McKay, R.; Lopez, A.)

I am a PhD student at the department Marine Geosciences and Global Change, at the Instituto Andaluz de Ciencias de la Tierra (IACT-CSIC), Spain. My main scientific interests are related to the study of Antarctic Ice sheet and Southern Ocean palaeoceanographic evolution using sedimentological, physical properties, and geochemical data. The main focus of my research has been the study of late Oligocene warmth, the Oligocene-Miocene Transition, and the Holocene deglaciation.

The poster presented at the EGU 2016 studies the link between bottom current sedimentation during the late Oligocene and its relation with Antarctic ice sheet and paleoceanographic configuration in front of the East Antarctic Wilkes Land Margin. The study is done in cores collected by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) expedition 318 at Site U1356.
