Student Modeler Award 2008


CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2008

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) promotes the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, and disseminating software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.
CSDMS invites graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the annual “CSDMS Student Modeler Award”. If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2008, which involved developing an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify for this award! Entries will be judged on the basis of ingenuity, applicability, and contribution towards the advancement of geoscience modeling by a panel of experts in the field.

We’ll have a prize! In addition, CSDMS will fund your visit to Boulder, Colorado to learn all about the CSDMS and work with CSDMS scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.

Please submit a 1-page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper and contact information of your supervisor to the CSDMS Facility:

Deadline for application: December 1st, 2008

Recipient of this year's award will be announced at the CSDMS Town Hall meeting, AGU, on December 18 in San Francisco, CA.
