Congratulations are awarded to Environment Institute members Jakin Ravalico, Graeme Dandy and Holger Maier, whose paper was recently named as the best paper published in Environmental Modelling and Software in the “Generic Modelling and/or Software Methods” category in 2010.
The paper, titled “Management Option Rank Equivalence (MORE) – A New Method of Sensitivity Analysis for Decision-Making” was seen to epitomise the aims and scope of the journal, as well as be of an outstanding quality, innovative, and either interdisciplinary in their problem treatment or generic in their utility. Rigor in the testing and reporting of the model/software was alos looked at closely. This paper presents a sensitivity analysis method, MORE, for models used to assist in the selection of two or more alternative management options.
The award will be given out at the 6th International Congress in Environmental Modelling and Software, which will be held in Leipzig in July next year.
