Ice-sheet modelling

Our ice-sheet modelling research focuses on improved quantification of uncertainty related to the impacts of climate change on ice-sheet dynamics and sealevel rise, potentially one of the most socially disruptive and economically damaging impacts of future climate change. Ice-sheet models are subject to a high degree of uncertainty related to their long intrinsic timescales, sensitivity to small-scale surface mass balance and bedrock topography, and the difficulty of obtaining observational data. These uncertainties can be reduced through detailed modelling, statistical techniques and calibration against observational data from satellite and paleoclimate records.
