Christina King Named as Honorable Mention for the 2010 Dwornik Award for Undergraduate Oral Presentation

In an announcement made today at the 42nd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) in The Woodlands, Texas, Christina King, Hawai‘i Space Grant Undergraduate Fellow (Spring and Fall 2009), was named as Honorable Mention for the 2010 Dwornik Award for Undergraduate Oral Presentations. She presented one of 13 talks at the 41st LPSC in the session designated “Mars: Timing of Recent and Older Geologic Processes.” Christina’s presentation, titled “Martian Slope Streaks Form Sporadically Throughout the Year,” was based on the Fellowship research she did with her mentor Dr. Norbert Schorghofer of the Institute for Astronomy. Originally an Art major, Christina moved to the U.H. Department of Physics and Astronomy. Christina received travel money from Hawai‘i Space Grant to present at the conference, which has gained the reputation of being the premiere gathering place for planetary scientists from around the world.
