The Student Author Awards are designed to recognise and acknowledge the 'best papers' submitted to GJI from young scientists in the field. Manuscripts are short listed by the high profile Editorial Board and highlighted on the Geophysical Journal International homepage. To qualify, authors must be a student and the lead author on the paper when it is submitted to GJI.
The 2011 winners will receive a cash prize and a certificate, and acknowledgement will be made at the American Geophysical Union meeting in December 2011 and the EGU General Assembly meeting in 2012.

Geophysical Journal International is the primary solid-earth geophysics journal based in Europe, publishing the results of research on the earth's internal structure, physical properties, evolution and processes covering all aspects of theoretical, computational and observational geophysics.
Subjects covered include:
• the whole range of earthquake and controlled-source seismology, tides, the Earth's gravitational field in relation to its shape, deep interior, crustal structure, stress and isostasy;
• palaeomagnetism and rock magnetism and their applications to geomagnetism, internal processes and geotectonics;
• heat flow, electromagnetism, rheology and volcanology;
• geophysics applied to the structure and evolution or rifts, ridges, trenches, mountains, continents and oceans.
