Glaciology Group , Stockholm University

Our research focusses mainly on climatic aspects of glaciology, addressing past, present and future climates. Currently, we conduct field work in the Swedish mountains, in Antarctica and on Greenland including a large variety of tools and techniques, such as ground penetrating radar, automatic weather stations, remote sensing, ice coring, measurements of mass balance, ice velocities, runoff and borehole water pressures. In addition to projects on basic glaciological science, we run a substantial glacier monitoring programme at the Tarfala Research Station, as well as in Antarctica.
