The OSPA programme allows student presenters at the AGU Fall Meeting to hone their presentation skills and receive valuable feedback from esteemed scientists. OSPA relies on anonymous volunteer judges who visit a student’s poster or oral presentation and engage them in order to help provide feedback about a student’s research and communication skills. The award promotes and recognizes high quality student presentations.

In her presentation, Marleen discussed how the current state-of-the art regional and global models and their outputs do not allow for a thorough representation and analysis of consecutive disasters and their impacts. Marleen underscored the relevance of improving our understanding of consecutive disasters by showing a global analysis of consecutive disasters consisting of historic earthquakes and typhoon events, and a local analysis of historic earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions and floods in the Philippines.
