Only a few more days to the RGS conference this year, so this is a timely announcement of the 2009 QMRG dissertation prize winner.
Many thanks for all the great entries and it was a pleasure for the committee to read such a wide ranging use of quantitative methods. The field this year was very strong indeed and all entrants should be commended, however, the entry submitted by the University of Oxford stood as being particularly innovative. Therefore, the prize this year is awarded to Amelia Hanna for the dissertation titled “Mega-Yardangs: A Quantitative Morphometric Study”. Well done Amelia and the QMRG committee wish you well for your future.
