Two presentations in the Atmospheric Sciences Section were named “Outstanding Student Papers” at AGU's 1993 Spring Meeting in Baltimore, Md.

Teri L. Quin presented “Dry Deposition of Trace Element Aerosols Depositing on the Chesapeake Bay.” She is a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland at College Park. Quin received a B.S. in chemistry from Jackson State University, Jackson, Miss. Her research interests include the characterization of sources of atmospheric particles and their effect on climate regimes, and her dissertation research focuses on the dry deposition of major, minor, and trace element aerosols to the Chesapeake Bay as a function of particle size and composition.
