I am a physical glaciologist interested in the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets, and their interaction with the climate system. My research group is working on a variety of topics related to ice sheet mass balance, including:
- dynamics and kinematics of rapid outlet glacier flow in Greenland
- ice-ocean interactions in Greenland
- subglacial floods and their affect on Antarctic outlet glacier flow
- spatial and secular patterns in polar snow accumulation
The work involves a combination of field measurement, satellite remote sensing, and modeling. See http://climatechange.umaine.edu/glaciology/index.html for more details.
