Congratulations to Claire Griffin!

Claire Griffin (Polaris 2009) has just been awarded a prestigious and highly-competitive NSF Graduate Research Fellowship for her proposal titled “Organic Matter in Large Arctic Rivers from Field and Satellite Remote Sensing Data”.  Claire worked with Karen Frey as an undergraduate at Clark University and is now a PhD student with Jim McClelland at the University of Texas.  Claire also published an excellent paper on remote sensing of Kolyma River DOC (Griffin et al. 2011), based on the work she did as an undergraduate participant in the Polaris Project.

Congratulations Claire!
