2014 Karen Harvey Prize: Alexis Rouillard

"For his contributions to heliospheric imaging analysis and, through the combination of modeling and multi-spacecraft remote imaging and in situ observations, his contributions to the understanding of the sources and heliospheric evolution of corotating interaction regions, small scale transients, coronal mass ejections, and solar energetic particle events."
A PDF version of the lecture slides, plus the movies shown during the talk are now available.
