Figure Caption: Grand Prize awardee 2021 AGU is currently pursuing a doctorate degree at the Department of Geosciences, University of Arizona.
Congratulations to John He on winning the grand prize for the 2021 AGU Michael H. Freilich Student Visualization Competition! John will get the opportunity to present his data visualization with AGU and NASA at the 2021 AGU Fall Meeting using NASA Hyperwall.
The AGU Michael H. Freilich Student Visualization Competition Program provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate creative ways to use visualization to present complex problems in the Earth and space sciences as well as transdisciplinary sciences. The competition is focused on innovation and creativity in presenting data in new ways as well as the perceived level of impact and engagement the planned presentation incites in audience and the organization and conceivability of the proposed presentation of data.
The data visualization originates from a research project conducted in collaboration with University of Arizona geoscientists Stuart Thomson and Peter Reiners, as well as Sidney Hemmings (Columbia University), and Kathy Licht (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), the results of which were recently published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters
