LEC carbon neutral PG Poster Days are a great success
Lancaster Environment Centre organised two carbon-neutral Poster Days in early June, one for Masters research students and one for PhD students. The posters were off-set by the planting of trees in the LEC picnic area.
Both days were a great success, with more posters than ever before lining not only the notice boards in the Atrium but also the walls and very nearly the ceiling. The standard of posters was exceptional, with numerous posters attracting the attention of the judging panels. This was complemented by a greater diversity of posters than had been witnessed before in LEC: ranging from isotope geochemistry to theories of practice. This of course made the judging a very difficult task, and thanks are due to Harry Pinkerton, Jackie Pates and Andy Wilby on the Masters Day and Oliver Wild, Rosa Menendez, Ben Surridge and Gordon Clark on the PhD poster day for delivering their verdicts under extreme time-constraints. The winning posters were presented by Matthew Barnes, Tracey Boardman and Gayle Halstead on the Masters day and by Alex Parker (1st year), Ricardo de Lima (2nd year) and Emma Sakamoto Ferranti (3rd year) on the PhD day: congratulations to each of them. All the winning posters are now on display in the LEC courtyard.
