Responsibilities

glacio-seismic data acquisition, processing, and interpretation


Research interests

Identify the subglacial material and subglacial hydrology of ice streams and the sheet-shelf transition area. I typically use active reflection seismics (profiling) for this. In the field we focus on high quality, high production, data collection by using a combination of a streamer and seismic vibrator or detonating cord.
