Our youngest PAL, Jonathan Simpson, has been working this summer on performing laser ultrasonics on rocks in our pressure vessel. This semester, Jonathan will embark on a BScHons thesis in our group. Today, he was awarded the S. J. Hastie Scholarship by the Geoscience Society of New Zealand. We congratulate Jonathan, and wish him good luck in his BScHons project on leaky modes in the Hikurangi Trench!
