Climate change and Brazilian River Flows

Publication of Joon Ho’s undergraduate dissertation

Climate change and Brazilian River Flows

Joon Ho, who graduated with a First Class BSc degree from UCL Geography in 2014, has added to her academic success with the publication of a journal paper based on her third year dissertation.

Joon’s dissertation, Modelling the Hydrological Impacts of Climate Change on the Tocantins-Araguaia River Basin”, was awarded the 2014 Royal Geographical Society Climate Change Research Group Undergraduate Dissertation Prize and was also runner-up for the British Hydrological Society Dissertation Prize in the same year.

A paper, co-authored by Dr Julian Thompson and Dr Chris Brierley, has just been published as an Author Manuscript Online in Hydrological Sciences Journal, and will appear in a forthcoming issue. Joon is currently studying for an MSc at the University of Oxford.
