The winner of the Undergraduate Dissertation Prize for 2017, announced at the recent AGM in Plymouth, is Carole Roberts (University College London), for her submission entitled A multiproxy study investigating ecological responses to acidification in Easedale Tarn, English Lake District, since the early 19th century.
The judges commented that the dissertation was “a beautifully worked-up study showing real quality in every aspect, from the rationale underlying the study through to the rigorous field and laboratory data collection, statistical and graphical analyses, and nuanced interpretations. Carole deserves huge credit for producing research of this quality at undergraduate level.”
