The Else-Ragnhild Neumann Award for Women in Geosciences – Laureates
The Else-Ragnhild Neumann Award for Women in Geosciences goes to women who have made a significant contribution to geosciences in their PhD or postdoctoral research.
Else-Ragnhild Neumann is Norway's first female professor of geology.
The award was established in 2018. Awarded by The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics in cooperation with The Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo.
– The laureates are as follows:
The 2020 award
The award winner for 2020 was recognised at a digital event at Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, on 18.12.2020.
Prize winner Ágnes Király: the award committee state that Ágnes Király has outstanding results already obtained and on an important topic, with important implications in Geodynamics. She has a very good publication record and has given several invited lectures. The candidate is a very promising young scientist.
The 2019 award
The award winner for 2019 was recognised at a special event at The Dept. of Geosciences and CEED at Toppsenteret, Forskningsparken, Oslo on 22.11.2019.
Prize winner Andreia Plaza-Faverola: the award committee concluded the research outcome of Andreia Plaza-Faverola deserves recognition due to its originality, high quality and impact. Her research in marine geophysics is original as she links gas emission occurrences in Arctic marine environment with the effects of glaciation/deglaciation and changes in tectonic stress.
The 2018 award
The 2018 award had two winners, and they were recognised at the special symposium for Else-Ragnhild Neumann 80st anniversary on 07.12.2018:
Prize winner Anja Røyne: deserved recognition for her investigations of mineral growth in porous media, fluid and hydration and crystal growth that provides a very interesting contribution to the poorly known nano- and micro-scale processes.
Prize winner Grace E. Shephard: always make original, rigorous and very robust quantitative contribution on mantle dynamics. The analysis provides fundamental contribution on understanding the link between shallow surface process and deep mantle dynamics.
