Division Outstanding Young Scientists Award 2011
The 2011 Division Outstanding Young Scientists Award is awarded to Thomas Mölg for his fundamental contribution to the study of surface-mass balance processes on tropical glaciers, and for furthering our understanding of the links between tropical glaciers and global climate.
My focus is on modeling atmosphere-cryosphere interactions in the climate system, and has evolved topically around tropical climate change and high-altitude ice fields. I pay particular attention to the issue of different space-time scales involved in these interactions, and my most recent work attempts to unify small mountain glaciers and large-scale atmospheric dynamics in a physically consistent way – so my interests lie in glaciology as well as in dynamic meteorology/climatology.
