Active seismic surveying on ice sheets, ice streams and ice shelves. Identification of subglacial material and the glaciological interpretation of the surveys.
Developing new seismic surveying and monitoring techniques.

Research interests

- Dynamics and subglacial hydrology of ice streams
- Ice Ocean interaction of glaciers and ice shelves
- Identify the subglacial material and subglacial hydrology of ice streams and the sheet-shelf transition area using active reflection seismics (profiling and Amplitude versus Angle (AVA) data). 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.
