The Department of Physical Geography is looking for a new colleague. In this unique glaciology project you will work on investigating the impact of climate change on lake-terminating glaciers in South Greenland. The aim of the project is to gain a better understanding of the effects of proglacial lakes on glacier mass loss and to assess how this process may accelerate mass loss in the future. You will use a combination of field observations, remote sensing, and a new model.
The PhD candidate will be part of a team of experienced and enthusiastic scientists specializing in glaciology, sea-level change, remote sensing, and modelling at our department. Part of the modelling work will be executed in collaboration with the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht (IMAU).
Scientists involved at Utrecht University: Faezeh M. Nick, Roderik van de Wal, and Walter Immerzeel
