Three students, who did their research within the framework of the MEET-project, won the yearly Adolf-von-Koenen-Award for their outstanding degree thesis at the Geoscience Center (GZG) of the University of Göttingen.
Tim Lippold (Vein formation in the Variscan slates and greywackes of the Upper Harz Mountains – an attempt of a macro- and microscopic characterization and interpretation) and Roman Hepp (Konstruktion eines 3D-Strukturmodells der Ohmgebirgs-Grabenzone mit dem Ziel der Übertragung der Ergebnisse auf den Leinetalgraben) are sharing the price for the best BSc-thesis of the year 2020 at the GZG. Julia Doerks (Critical Compilation of Sustainable Energy Supply Concepts and their Integration into the University of Göttingen Campus) got the award for the best MSc-thesis. Supervision of the theses was carried out by the MEET-members Katie Ford, Ali Abdelkhalek, Bianca Wagner and Bernd Leiss. Already last year, the award was won by the MEET-student Max Zeuner (Conceptual 3D-structure model of the Variscan “Culm Fold Zone” in the vicinity of the Okertal dam (Harz Mountains, Germany) in terms of geothermal reservoir development) for the best MSc-thesis. The prize money is awarded yearly by the association of the “Freunde der Geowissenschaften der Universität Göttingen e.V.” (https://www.uni-goettingen.de/de/adolf+von+koenen-preis/515771.html).
The MEET-consortium appreciates the valuable contributions by the students to the project!
