Students… It's time to apply for the CSDMS STUDENT MODELER AWARD.

Applications due by January 5, 2015

CSDMS invites graduate and undergraduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the Annual Student Modeler Award. If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2014, 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.

To apply, submit the following to by January 5th, 2015:

  • a 1‐page abstract highlighting your results
  • a digital copy of your thesis or research paper,
  • contact information of your supervisor.

Recipients of this year’s award will be announced by late January 2015. The winner will receive a fully funded trip* to Boulder, Colorado to attend the CSDMS annual meeting to learn all about CSDMS, network with other modelers and attend a suite of clinics. The meeting will be held from May 26-28, 2015.

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.

* Trip must originate from within the Continental U.S.A.
