DFG awards 4 young scientists 2010 Bernd Rendel Prize
Date:10/7/2010

This release is available in German.

Four young female geoscientists have been selected by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) to receive the 2010 Bernd Rendel Prize. The researchers, who were selected from 27 nominees, have made significant and original contributions to geological basic research at early stages in their careers. The Bernd Rendel Prize features prize money of 2,000 euros and is designed to enable the recipients to take part in international conferences and conventions. The young researchers, who had earned their diplomas but not yet achieved their doctorates at the time of application, were awarded for excellence in their diploma theses, ongoing dissertation work, or other research. The prizes will be awarded on 10 October 2010 as part of the celebrations commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Geologische Vereinigung (GV) in Frankfurt am Main.

This year's prizewinners are:

Geologist Juliane Hinz (27), Eberhard-Karl University of Tbingen

Juliane Hinz' research focuses on the reconstruction of fossil forests. For her diploma thesis, she used the latest 3-D technology to model an Upper Jurassic araucaria forest based on finds from China's Dzungarian Basin. She modelled each individual plant in accurate detail, and used terrain data to link them together. This resulted in a highly realistic model of the forest. Her working methods, which involved combining the latest modelling methods with palaeontology, enable a more comprehensive understanding of palaeo-ecosystems. Hinz also performs research into the biomechanics of dinosaur and mammal hip joints. In mammals, the pelvis provides a stable, interconnected frame, whereas the pelvic bones of most dinosaurs are not fused. A detailed analysis is planned to clarify what this difference means for dinosaur and mammal movement.
