This scholar will extend and substantially improve the comprehensive record of thickness, velocity, and ice discharge for Greenland’s marine-terminating outlet glaciers in order to constrain ice sheet and ocean models and better understand changes in ice dynamics, freshwater flux, mass balance and contribution to sea level rise. Scholar will use multiple remote sensing datasets to measure changes in glaciers, including ice flow speed, thickness change and front retreat and will analyze these measurements to determine the causes of change and the glacier/ice sheet mass balance. The scholar will document these findings in peer-reviewed journal articles.
Ph.D. in Earth Sciences or related field. 3-5 years of experience working with digital elevation models of Greenland outlet glaciers.
Greenland field work experience also desired.
