AGCI Workshop Participation
October 11, 2015 to October 16, 2015
Ian Howat is a glaciologist focused on the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets, and particularly their rapid response to climate forcing. He uses a wide range of observations from remote sensing, in situ data networks and field campaigns to constrain quantitative models of ice flow. These models are used to predict future changes in ice sheet mass balance and rates of sea level rise. Howat has been a participant and leader on numerous science expeditions to Antarctica, Iceland and Greenland.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
What We Do
