Dr. Jesús Carrera Ramirez (IDAEA, Barcelona).

The prize is awarded to Dr. Carrera for his critical contributions to the development of mathematical hydrogeology and transport modelling in groundwater systems.

His work increases the significance and relevance of computer simulations for groundwater research, by re-estimating the value of governing parameters, identifying new mechanisms and parameters to describe transport phenomena in groundwater, and searching for solutions on transport situations that are not described by standard simulation techniques.

As a result, he has made a quantitative identification of the processes and searched for solutions to these phenomena, including the globally critical problem of seawater intrusion and water salinisation in arid regions.

His developments in the field of groundwater conservative and reactive transport modelling have advanced the field towards the reliable prediction of the long‐term fate of pollutants in environmental systems.
