Rishbeth Prizes 2017

Congratulations to Jade Reidy (University of Southampton) and Mervyn Freeman (British Antarctic Survey) for winning this year's Rishbeth prizes for their presentations at the National Astronomy Meeting at the University of Hull this July.

Jade Reidy won the prize for best student talk, on the subject of ‘Preliminary results of an interhemispheric survey of polar cap aurora’, and Mervyn Freeman won the prize for best poster, on the subject of ‘The temperature signature of an IMF-driven change to the global atmospheric electric circuit in the Antarctic troposphere’.

Both winners have committed to write a piece for Astronomy & Geophysics on the topic of their research, so look out for those in future issues of A&G!
