Congratulations are ado to the UBC Library’s Innovative Dissemination of Research Award for 2013 winner, Rowan B. Cockett – a Masters of Science student in Geophysics – who was formally recognized at a UBC research awards reception on March 25, 2013. Cockett’s submission “came from a desire to improve the way geoscience research is disseminated to undergraduate students. It involves an interactive, web-based application designed to enhance the visualization of geologic structures and processes through the use of interactive 3D diagrams”.
