The R. S. Tarr Student Poster (Guided Poster) Competition is held annually for students of all academic levels (undergraduate, Master's, and Ph.D.) who conduct research on topics within the cryosphere. This competition is in honor of Ralph Stockman Tarr, an American glaciologist and past president of the AAG, whose research was focused on Alaskan glaciers. Students are encouraged to submit a poster based on a portion of their research, and provide a brief presentation of their poster at the competition. The research must be primarily conducted by the student, however the students academic advisor(s) may be secondary authors. Multiple monetary awards will be presented for the best poster / research / presentation for the various academic levels. For questions regarding the R. S. Tarr competition, please contact Dr. Jeff VanLooy (jvanlooy@aero.und.edu).
