I take care of field glaciology and geophysical methods for glaciologic applications, teaching glaciology at the University of Bremen, including a yearly excursion to the dying Vernagtferner in Austria to give students hands-on experience with ice before it is gone.

Research interests

Physical properties of glaciers and ice sheets;

Mass balance of ice masses;

Long-term observations;

Liquid water retention in firn and snow;

Relation of ice dynamics to climate change;

Paleo-climate reconstruction from ice-core records.
