Several of the MISU PhD students participated in the Bolin Days Poster Competition, November 22-23, proudly presenting their research. At the end of the meeting the Bolin Days guests voted on the posters, giving MISU PhD student Evelien Dekker an honouring 3rd prize.

- The poster is about my master thesis research "Nudging the Arctic Ocean to quantify sea-ice feedbacks", says Evelien Dekker.

- In my model I started with a control setup of temperature and salinity, adding a perturbation of doubled carbon dioxide and then modelled a nudge procedure to determine what it would take to obtain a climate with present day Arctic sea ice state, Evelien Dekker explains.

Apart from the honour, there is also a reward of 5.000 SEK, but Evelien has not yet decided how to best spend the money.
