CL Climate: Past, Present & Future
The 2010 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Matthew Toohey for the poster/PICO entitled:
How does the impact of tropical volcanic eruptions depend on eruption season? (Toohey, M.; Niemeier, U.; Lorenz, S.; Kutterolf, S.; Freundt, S.; Timmreck, C.; Krueger, K.)

Matthew Toohey received a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Toronto, and is now a post-doctoral researcher at IFM-GEOMAR in Kiel, Germany. His current research involves simulating large-scale volcanic eruptions within the ECHAM5 General Circulation Model. His poster presented at EGU 2010 focuses on simulations of the Los Chocoyos eruption of 84000 years ago in present-day Guatemala, and explores how stratospheric volcanic aerosol distributions, and related climatic anomalies, depend on the season of eruption.
