Student Awarded at SAGEEP 2024's Special IP Session
To celebrate Tucson's legacy on Induced Polarization (IP) at the recently held SAGEEP 2024, we organized a special session on IP and offered an award for the best IP presentation by a student or early career professional. The awardee received a presentation invitation and free registration by the orrganizers of the 7th International Workshop on Induced Polarization.  A $1500 travel grant was also awarded by sponsor Ontash & Ermac.  The winner of the award was Nuray Oncul for her presentation "Non-linear Spectral Induced Polarization effects in Porous Media Containing Electron Conducting Minerals."  Nuray is a PhD candidate at Rutgers University, research focused on the use of SIP for mineral exploration.
