Glaciology, Ice sheet modelling and geophsyics, Antarctica


Abstract : The Laboratoire de Glaciologie of the Faculty of Sciences of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) is a research unit focused on the study of glaciers and ice sheets and their relation within the climate system. The GEMICE group (Geophysics and Modelling of Ice) is specialized in the development of numerical ice sheet models, applied to specific glaciological problems, such as grounding lines, ice streams, ice sheet/ice shelf transitions, subglacial lake interconnection, subglacial polythermal conditions etc. Validation of these models is currently done using overland and airborne geophysics, such as radio-echo sounding. Field work is concentrated on polythermal glaciers and Antarctic. More information is found on the website.
