Department of Energy Sponsored Graduate Student Receives Award


Phoebe Lam, a University of California, Berkeley, graduate student supported by a Department of Energy Office of Science research project at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory received the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Ocean Sciences Section “Outstanding Student Paper Award” for her presentation at the 2004 (December) AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. The paper was about the delivery of iron to the ocean in dust from continents (for example, from deserts) and the influence that iron, an essential nutrient for ocean organisms, has on the growth of microscopic ocean organisms that drive some of the cycling of carbon between the atmosphere and the ocean.
