Student Award 2012 - Winners

04/10/2012

The BHS Student Award is for the best undergraduate final-year dissertation on a hydrological subject. This year's winner was Amanda Green (UCL) whose dissertation was on ‘Quantifying uncertainty in projections of river discharge in the Mekong River Basin under climate change’.

BHS launched its annual student award in 2002 to promote the study of hydrology and raise awareness of the Society at undergraduate level. Academic departments are invited to submit their best undergraduate dissertation and prizes are awarded on the achievement, relevance, originality and presentation of submitted final-year dissertations addressing scientific and applied issues in hydrology, judged by a panel drawn from the BHS Main Committee.

This year we had 11 entries, many of them of an extremely high standard, and the judges had a difficult task to choose a winner and two runners-up.

The winner was Amanda Green (UCL) for her dissertation on ‘Quantifying uncertainty in projections of river discharge in the Mekong River Basin under climate change’. Amanda will be starting a PhD at UCL this autumn.

Runners-up prizes were awarded to Tom Greenwood (University of Southampton) for ‘The Impact of Large Woody Debris Dams upon Flow Resistance in the Highland Water’ and to Simon Hodgkinson (University of Birmingham) for ‘Spring precipitation variability and its affect on river discharge over the East Anglian region of Great Britain’.
