The Antarctic glaciers and ice shelf research program at the Department of Geography aims to increase the understanding of:

  • cold based glaciers as geomorphic agents
  • how ice shelves entrain, transport and deposit sediments into moraines
  • marine ice formation at the base of ice shelves

Field work is focused on the McMurdo Dry Valleys region and the McMurdo Ice Shelf in Antarctica.
