I am a glaciologist working at BAS, running a work-package called ISM (Ice-sheet modelling) in the Ice Sheets Project
Glaciologists examine the behaviour of ice-sheets, how they flow, how they interact with the atmosphere, ocean and geological substrate. I am an ice-sheet modeller and radioglaciologst. I formulate, analyse and solve equations describing the flow of ice, heat and subglacial sediment and water. Generally solutions need to be obtained numerically, but certain analytical or semi-analytical procedures are also useful. I run radars in the field and try to understand the implications for ice-flow using by modelling. My guiding aim is to do "ESS glaciology", by which I mean the glaciology that is required for understanding how ice-sheets have operated in the global system.
