Student Modeler Award 2012
CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2012
CSDMS invites undergraduate and graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for this annual award. If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2012, which involved developing or applying an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify! 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, the winner will receive a funded trip* to the CSDMS Integration Facility in Boulder, Colorado to work with our scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.
To enter, submit a 1‐page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper, and contact information of your supervisor to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2012. Recipients of this year’s award will be announced by late January, 2013.
The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System deals with the Earth's surface-the ever changing, dynamic interface between lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and atmosphere. We promote the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, and disseminating integrated software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux (production, erosion, transport, and deposition) of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.
