EGU Outstanding Student Poster Award 2013 to PhD student at IRF
The European Geosciences Union, EGU, has awarded a 2013 Outstanding Student Poster Award in Planetary and Solar System Sciences to Oleg Shebanits, a PhD student at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) and Uppsala University, for a poster entitled "Negative ion densities in the deep ionosphere of Titan".
The winning poster presented the results of Oleg Shebanits' research on the production of pre-biotic molecules in the ionospheres of Saturn’s moon Titan and the early Earth. The ionosphere of Titan hosts complex organic chemistry where ions are playing a key role. Heavy negative ions in particular are participating in the formation of aerosols (tholins) in Titan’s haze layer.
