Prize for presentation at IGS-2015 to PhD student

Glaciologists and other scientists and students from around the world met in Kathmandu in Nepal in the first week in March 2015. The venue was the International Symposium on Glaciology in High Mountain Asia. PhD student Désirée Treichler from the Department of Geosciences attended the academic program, and received a prize for best student presentation for her presentation about hydrological consequences of glacier mass changes in high mountain Asia.

Prize for best student presentation

International Symposium on Glaciology in High Mountain Asia - IGS 2015 - took place from 1-6 March in Kathmandu, Nepal. This year`s conference brought together over 240 researchers in glaciology and satellite measurements, including MSc and PhD students in the respective disciplines.

One of the participants at this year's symposium was PhD student Désirée Treichler from the Department of Geosciences. Treichler attended the symposium with a lecture on hydrological consequences of glacier mass changes in high mountain Asia, and won an award for best student presentation in competition with many others.

The title of her lecture was: "Hydrological Implications of glacier mass changes in High Mountain Asia derived from IceSat laser altimetry."

Treichler is glaciologist and PhD student at the Section for Geography and Hydrology, Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo.

About IGS

The goal of the IGS 2015 symposium is to focus on changes in glacier mass and the status of glaciers in high mountain Asia. Participants in the symposium are researchers and students in glaciology and remote sensing. This year, there were participants from around 26 countries.

The symposium is organized by the International Glaciological Society and The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development - ICIMOD.
