The 2009 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Andrea Niedermayr for the poster/PICO entitled:
Strontium Incorporation and Calcium Isotopic Fractionation during Calcium Carbonate Precipitation (Niedermayr, A.; Dietzel, M.; Kohler, S. J.; Böhm, F.; Kisakurek, B.; Eisenhauer, A.)
Andrea Niedermayr is currently a PhD student at the Institute of Applied Geosciences at the University of Technology in Graz (Austria), supervised by Martin Dietzel. Her study deals with the crystallization of the calcium carbonate polymorphs calcite, aragonite and vaterite. The focus is given on Mg and Sr incorporation and fractionation of calcium, magnesium, carbon and oxygen isotopes during CaCO3 precipitation. Main objective of EGU 2009 poster was to decipher the impact of precipitation rate and temperature on Sr incorporation behaviour and calcium isotope fractionation during CaCO3 formation.
