Michael Schindelegger receives Best Paper Award of the Faculty

Should we rather use angular momentum quantities or the local pressure and friction forces on the Earth's topography for the description of the atmospheric influence on the rotation of our planet? Michael Schindelegger, together with his co-authors David Salstein (USA) and Johannes Böhm, answered that question in a recently published JGR (Journal of Geophysical Research) article for the particular case of polar motion variations on seasonal and intraseasonal time scales. For this publication, Michael Schindelegger was awarded the Best Paper Award 2013 of the Faculty of Mathematics and Geoinformation, with Robert Weber presenting the laudatio at the award ceremony.
