Der Preis ist nach dem herausragenden Geographen Eduard Brückner (1862-1927) benannt, der sich neben der Erforschung des eiszeitlichen Klimas in den Alpen und der natürlichen Klimaschwankungen auf Zeitskalen von Jahrzehnten auch um die ökonomische und soziale Dimension des Klimas in historischer Zeit verdient gemacht hat." Vorschläge für Preisträger bitte bis 1. September 2017 an Hans von Storch.

    Hans von Storch is interested in coastal climate and impact (wind, storm surges and waves) in recent times and in possible futures, and methodical issues of statistical climatology (such as detection and attribution of anthropogenic climate change, or utility of proxy data). He is also engaged in joint research with social and cultural scientists since many years.

    Hans von Storch has published 18 books, and numerous articles. He is member of the advisory/review board of Journal of Climate. In Poland, he serves on the editorial boards of Oceanologia, Meteorology, Hydrology and Water Management Research and Operational Applications", and the “Papers on Global Change, IGBP”. He is a member of the Senior Advisory Board of Baltic Earth (the successor of the BALTEX program).
    He chaired the preparation of the 1st and 2nd BACC report and the 1st and 2nd "Klimabericht für die Metropolregion Hamburg" (see here). After having served as a Lead Author for Working Group I of IPCC TAR, he acted as a Lead Author of Chapter 2 "Foundations of Decision Making" of Working Group II of IPCC AR5.

    Hans studied mathematics, physics and Danish at the University of Hamburg, and received a diploma in mathematics in 1976. While a student he also worked as a programmer at the Department of Oceanography. He went on to receive his Ph.D. from the Meteorological Department of the University of Hamburg in 1979, and his "Habilitation" in 1985. From 1987 - 1995, he was Senior Scientist and leader of the "Statistical Analysis and Modelling" group at the Max Planck-Institut for Meteorology (Hasselmann division). During 1996-2015, Hans von Storch was director of what became later the Institute for Coastal Research at the GKSS Research Centre (now Helmholtz Center Geesthacht) and professor at the Meteorological Institute of the University of Hamburg. Within the Institute for Coastal Research, he headed the division "Systems Analysis and Modelling" until September 2015. In October 2008, he was awarded a doctor h.c. by Göteborgs Universitet, and in May 2013 he was elected a foreign member of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

    He is married to Dr. Jin-Song von Storch (徐劲松).

    During his academic life, which began in about 1976, Hans von Storch made a number of intellectual achievements. (Werner Krauss wrote a nice subjective piece about his role and his achievements; see also Sven Titz' "Klimawissenschaft zwischen Skylla und Charybdis" in NZZ, 27. January 2010. An overview of work is also given by the citation of the IMSC achievement award "to recognize his key contributions to statistical downscaling, reconstruction of temperature series, analyses of climatic variability, and detection and attribution of climate change". See also Quotes.)
