‘Coolest Paper of 2013’ Award

The Early Career Hydrogeologists’ Network (ECHN) of the International Association of Hydrogeology (IAH) has recently launched the first edition of the ‘Coolest Paper of 2013’ Award.

The prize will be awarded at the 2014 IAH congress in Marrakech, Morocco, where the winning author will be invited to deliver an oral presentation. In addition, there will be a random draw after each of the two phases, and one lucky participant will receive their choice of book title from the IAH series.

From January to March ECHN asked Early Career Hydrogeologists worldwide to nominate their favourite hydrogeology paper published (online or in volume) during 2013 in any peer-reviewed journal.


ECHN asked to nominate for the most amazing, inspirational, engaging, cool hydrogeology paper from any journal and by any author.
The only criterion: it needed to be about hydrogeology and one need be an early career hydrogeologist (post-graduate student or in the early years of professional work) to vote.

The nomination phase has resulted in the following list of paper:

So it’s now time to start with “phase two”: let’s vote for the Coolest Paper of 2013!
From April 1 to May 31, 2014, click here to vote and you’ll also have the chance to WIN a book of your choice from the IAH book series!

Please note that voting is restricted to one vote per person. When voting you will be asked to enter name and contact details, and to verify that you are an early career hydrogeologist, and have not already voted.
