Project Details


Together with researchers from the Norwegian Research Centre (NORCE) in Bergen I am working on a project seeking to improve past and future simulations of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The project has two primary objectives: (1) To determine upper bounds for rates of sea-level contribution from the Greenland ice sheet until 2050, 2100 and 2150 using novel model projections, initialised from historical simulations that reproduce observed mass changes; and (2) To constrain climate change trajectories that lead to a stabilisation of the Greenland ice sheet by 2500.

My role is to improve the representation of ice-ocean interactions - including submarine melt and calving - in the ice sheet simulations.
