Faculty Highlights - James Fastook

Though his specialty is glaciology and much of his research falls squarely into the category of climate change, James Fastook is first and foremost a classical physicist whose specialty is solving numerical equations through a computer. The professor of computer science developed the University of Maine Ice Sheet Model, a multifaceted mathematical approach to ice sheet physics. His ice sheet modeling helps climate scientists gain a better understanding of the glaciological processes that have shaped Earth and Mars.
