The Potomac Chapter decided to fund a $400 student travel award to the AFS 2013 Annual Meeting. The AFS Estuaries Section awards three travel awards each year. For 2013, the Estuaries Section received more high-quality nominations than it could afford to fund. When the Potomac Chapter learned of this, its leaders decided to fund a deserving student.
The awardee, Konstantine Rountos, made one oral presentation and one poster presentation at the AFS 2013 Annual Meeting in Little Rock, Arkansas. Rountous is a fourth-year Ph.D. student at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences under the advisement of Dr. Ellen K. Pikitch. Konstantine has contributed the feature article to this edition of the newsletter. The Potomac Chapter appreciates his high-quality scholarship and interest in AFS.
