Eight of our students, including five presenters, attended the 66th Annual Atlantic Universities Geoscience Conference, which was held at Acadia University, in Wolfville Nova Scotia, from 27th – 29th October, 2016. 

All of our presenters were recognized for their work: of the six awards given out, our students won three (best presentation, best poster and best geophysics presentation), and the other two presenters were tied runners up for best presentation.
