In order to encourage further research and advancement of knowledge in THMC processes in fractured geological media, CouFrac has established the Chin-Fu Tsang Coupled Processes Award to recognize outstanding contributions from geoscientists in their early career (defined below) in research into THMC coupling in fractured rock that are of importance internationally. The winner of ‘Chin-Fu Tsang Coupled Processes Award’ will be announced two months before each CouFrac conference, and the award will be conferred during the conference. The first award was conferred to Dr. Adriana Paluszny during the CouFrac2018 in Wuhan, China. The winner will be presented an award plaque or certificate and an honorarium of US$3,000 to partially support his/her travel to the conference to give an award lecture.
Potential candidates for ‘Chin-Fu Tsang Coupled Processes Award’ in CouFrac2020 should:
1) have no more than eight years of experience past their PhD
2) have made significant contributions on THMC for fractured rock (journal publications need to be provided and will be reviewed by the Award committee)
Nomination letters are invited and should be sent to the Conference chair (Jonny Rutqvist, firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 15, 2020, together with the CV of the candidate and copies of one, two, but no more than three, significant journal papers. Self-nominations are also welcome.
