CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2009 Winners

We are proud to announce that we have two winners of the CSDMS Student Modeler Award for 2009. They are 1) Adam Campbell for his submission, "Numerical Model investigation of Crane Glacier response to collapse of the Larsen B ice shelf, Antarctic Peninsula' link to abstract; and 2) Elchin Jafarov for his submission of "Numerical Modeling of Permafrost Dynamics in Alaska Using a High Spatial Resolution Dataset." link to abstract. Both will receive a funded visit to the CSDMS Integration Facility in Boulder, Colorado, to learn and work with CSDMS scientists to develop their model into a CSDMS component.

CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2009 - Call for Entries

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 2009, 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:

The call for applications closed December 1, 2009.

Recipient of this year's award will be announced at the end of the year.
