Congratulations to EPS PhD student Jake Setera on winning a prestigious GSA Lipman Award! Setera was recognized for his proposal to study the thermal evolution of the Bushveld Igneous Complex in South Africa, which is the largest layered igneous intrusion identified in the Earth's crust. The GSA Lipman Award funding will allow Setera to learn a new technique, measuring U-Pb ages on apatite crystals, in collaboration with researchers at Princeton University.
