During the ABC/J Summer Festival on July 5, 2019 in Cologne, Germany, Dr. Jessica Keune of the Bonn Institute of Geosciences (Department of Meteorology) was awarded first prize for her dissertation on Integrated terrestrial simulations at the continental scale: Impact of groundwater dynamics and human water use on groundwater-to-atmosphere feedbacks during the European heatwave in 2003.

Further prizes were awarded to Dr. Melanie Bartz (2nd prize) from the Institute of Geography at the University of Cologne for her research work entitled Quaternary fluvial environments in NE Morocco inferred from geochronological and sedimento-logical investigations and Dr. Maximilian Weigand (3rd prize) from the Bonn Institute of Geosciences (Department of Geophysics) for his dissertation on Monitoring structural and physiological properties of crop roots using spectral electrical impedance tomography.

The Geoverbund ABC/J Young Academics Award honours outstanding dissertations and research work carried out at the member institutes of the Geoverbund ABC/J. We congratulate the awardees!
