Land Ice

LIWG Projects

Active areas of ice sheet model research include:

  • development and testing of higher-order momentum balance, including scalable solvers
  • improved parameterizations of key physical processes such as basal hydrology and iceberg calving
  • formulation of experiments for assessment of decade-to-century-scale sea-level rise
  • dynamic coupling of ice-sheet models to ocean models
