Modelling the impact of climate change in the Tocantins-Araguaia River Basin

National dissertation prize for UCL Geographer

Joon Ting Ho, one of this year’s top final year Geography undergraduates, graduating with a First Class degree, has been awarded a runner up prize in the British Hydrological Society Student Award 2014.

Her thesis, Modelling the Hydrological Impacts of Climate Change on the Tocantins-Araguaia River Basin (Brazil), was supervised by Dr Chris Brierley and awarded an exceptionally high grade in the final examinations..

Joon developed and calibrated a hydrological model of this major tributary of the River Amazon and applied it to analyse the basin’s response to climate change, projected from 41 alternative climate models.

The prize consists of £200, a certificate, and a year’s free membership of the British Hydrological Society.

A copy of the abstract of Joon’s dissertation will appear in the autumn edition of the BHS quarterly newsletter, Circulation. A version has also been submitted for publication in the Hydrological Sciences Journal.
