The 2019 Early Career Scientist Award by the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS, https://cryosphericsciences.org
) will go to Doug Brinkerhoff, Montana University, and Denis Felikson, NASA Goddard Space Center.
The IACS Early Career Scientist (ECS) Prize is a bi-annual cash prize of € 1000 awarded to two early career scientists who have published the best scientific papers on a cryospheric subject as assessed by an independent evaluation committee. The objective of the prize is to recognize excellence in cryospheric science by honouring and promoting two ECS scientists, and to draw attention to the work of IACS.
The recipients will receive the awards at the upcoming IUGG/IACS conference in Montreal, 9-13 July 2019
