Research program

PACES II 3.2: Earth system on tectonic time scales: From greenhouse to icehouse world
PACES II 3.1: Circumpolar climate variability and global teleconnections at seasonal to orbital time scales


Responsibilities

Principal investigator for Helmholtz Postdoc Project PD-201 "The dynamics of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Cenozoic".


Research interests

I combine ice-proximal marine geologic, glacial geomorphologic, and seismic data from formerly glaciated Antarctic continental shelves in order to perform detailed ice-sheet reconstructions, and define basal processes at the ice/seabed-interface | More information about my current Helmholtz Postdoc project "The dynamics of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Cenozoic" (2015 - 2018) can be found here: www.awi.de/en/science/geosciences/marine-geology/main-research-focus/palaeo-ice-sheet-dynamics/waic-klages-en.html
