The 2008 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Theresa Blume for the poster/PICO entitled:
Field observations of persistent preferential flow paths in volcanic ash soils as a result of hydrophobicity (Blume, T.; Zehe, E.; Bronstert, A.)

Theresa Blume finished her PhD at the Institute for Geoecology, University of Potsdam, Germany in December 2007. The main research objective of her thesis was the investigation of runoff generation processes in a data-scarce catchment in the Chilean Andes, by targeted field campaigns on the one hand and physically based modelling on the other hand. The poster presented at EGU 2008 shows how experimental results from various types of measurements at different temporal and spatial resolution connect to demonstrate the importance of persistent preferential flow paths.
