Andrea Morcioni, PhD student at the Department of Earth Sciences “A.Desio”, was rewarded by Harpaceas within the “Digital Model Award 2023” contest, category “Geotechnical computation – FLAC3D”, with a work entitled “La Frana di Piuro del 1618: modellazione numerica idro-meccanica con FLAC3D” (authors: Andrea Morcioni, Tiziana Apuani e Francesco Cecinato).
The price is awarded to research works where the advanced usage of specific software brings to the construction of advanced and innovative numerical models.

Marco Viaretti PhD student of the 37 cycle has been selected for one of the two 2022 SPI scholarship for early-career paleontologists (PhD students and Post-Doc researchers), an award of the Italian Paleontological Society (SPI), for a project entitled “Seasonal seawater pH variations in the Late Paleozoic – Boron isotopes from brachiopod shells as a paleo-proxy”. The award carries a monetary value of €2,000 to be used to support the research at the St. Andrews Isotope Geochemistry (STAiG) laboratory facilities of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences of the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, UK in collaboration with Dr. Hana Jurikova.
