IADC Young Author Award

IADC Young Author Award

09-07-2014

This year’s IADC Young Author Award more than fulfilled its goal to recognise young people working in the fields of dredging and maritime research. At the 33rd PIANC World Congress held in San Francisco, California, June 1-5, 2014, the International Association of Dredging Companies bestowed its award on the paper, “Reducing Shoaling in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and Erosion of Barrier Islands along West Galveston Bay”. It was given to Coraggio Maglio as the presenter. The honour was shared by his team of co-authors – Kimberly Townsend, Rob Thomas, Derek Thornton, Jantzen Miller, Tricia Campbell, Lihwa Lin, Sheridan Willey, and Eric Wood – most of whom are also young professionals and all of whom are members of the US Army Corps of Engineers.
