The 2019 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Award is awarded to Elisa Ziegler for the poster/PICO entitled:

Transient simulation of climate variability during the Last Glacial Maximum and the Holocene with an energy balance climate model (Ziegler, E.; Rehfeld, K.)

Elisa Ziegler is a graduate student at the Institute of Environmental Physics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. She evaluates climate variability using climate models of low complexity as part of Dr. Kira Rehfeld’s research group, State and timescale-dependency of climate variability from the last Glacial to present day (
The poster details her work as a master student extending a two-dimensional energy balance climate model to run transient simulations forced by carbon dioxide, insolation, orbital configuration, as well as land, sea, and ice distribution. The influences of different forcings on the modelled temperature fields are compared in idealized experiments, and a simulation over the past 100,000 years is presented.
