My courses


I am interested in the flow dynamics, stability and climatic response of glaciers and ice sheets. This has led to that my research involves studies of glacier mass balance, thermodynamics and the coupling between dynamical and hydrological processes on glaciers and ice sheets. I work mostly with collecting, processing and interpreting geophysical and remote sensing data and the assmilation of these data into glaciological models
