This year Celia Baumhoer (Department Land Surface Dynamic, DFD) was awarded for her work in the context of her PhD thesis “Glacier front dynamics of Antarctica – Analyzing changes in glacier and ice shelf front positions based on SAR time-series“.
The "ASTO Förderpreis" is an individual award for supporting scientific work of young scientists at the beginning of their PhD. It is awarded annually through the GvF. Celia Baumhoer also got the opportunity to present first results of her work at the scientific GvF colloquium.
