The 2013 Outstanding Student Poster (OSP) Award is awarded to Bas de Boer for the poster/PICO entitled:
Simulating regionally varying sea-level changes over the past glacial cycles with a coupled ice-sheet sea-level model (De Boer, B.; Stocchi, P.; Van de Wal, R.)

Bas de Boer is a Post Doc at the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU) at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. He obtained his PhD in February 2012. This project was focussed on reconstructing ice volume and temperature from benthic d18O data over the past 40 million years. As part of his PhD project he developed a system of four 3-D ice-sheet models toreconstruct ice volume during the past 1 million years. The poster at the EGU 2013 presents a new coupled system of these four 3-D ice-sheet models combined with a sea-level model that calculates relative sea-level change over the globe. The results indicate that the two-way coupling provides new insight in the interaction between ice sheets, topography and relative sea-level change.
