research

We are curious, enthusiastic, determined, scientific, and interested in making a difference through science.

Our research focus is the cryosphere - all things ice - and its interaction with the ocean, climate, and life systems.

We use data from space, the field, and computer simulations to understand ice and climate change - now and in the future.

Research areas:

  • Glacier - ice sheet dynamics
  • Ice sheet - ocean interaction
  • Ice loss and freshwater flux 
  • Ice - ecosystem connections
  • Hydrology of glaciers and ice sheets
  • Glacier - sea ice interaction
