PhD: Investigating the climate feedbacks that will determine the fate of the Greenland ice sheet.

Sea level change is one of the most widely recognised and potentially serious consequences of climate change. The contribution of ice mass loss is a significant but currently uncertain component of predicted future sea level.

To address these uncertainties, this project will employ cutting-edge numerical models of global climate and focus in on the climate-ice interactions over Greenland. In parallel, observational data will be used to both verify the model’s capabilities and improve its physical parameterisations.
