  • Ken Mankoff will begin his PhD. this fall at UCSC and as such does not have a very well defined research topic. He will likely work on projects involving subglacial lakes and grounding lines. He is currently analyzing data from the terminal face of Pine Island Glacier, and oceanographic and sea ice data from the larger Amundsen Sea area.
  • Jeremy Fyke is working on a PhD with the Antarctic Research Centre in Wellington, New Zealand. My project involves coupling an ice sheet model to an Earth System model 'of intermediate complexity' (the University of Victoria Earth System Climate Model) in order to have a go at simulating coupled climate/ice sheet interactions over millennial time scales.
  • Florence Colleoni will defend her Ph.D. in paleoclimate modeling at LGGE (Grenoble, Fr) in early September. She will then start a post-doctorate at the Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici in Bologna (Italy) to couple the CISM Glimmer to the Earth System model composed of the AGCM of NCAR and of the OGCM NEMO. The final aim is to carry out transient paleoclimate simulations to understand and reproduce the interglacial/glacial transition mechanisms. This will be done in collaboration with NCAR. - My entire Ph.D. thesis is available here-
