activities concentrate on the numerical modeling of ice and climate interactions.
I am mainly working on
3-D thermomechanical models, which are used to simulate the ice sheets of
and those that
covered the northern hemisphere continents during the ice ages, on time scales
from Tertiary ice-sheet inception to glacial-interglacial cycles and future
warming. Other models are applied to Alpine and polar outlet glaciers.
These models need the best field data as input. At the left you see the author assisting in field measurements on the 79-degree fjord glacier, northeast Greenland, during the summer of 1997.
