I study the dynamics of fjords containing marine terminating glaciers which drain large areas of the Greenland Ice Sheet. My main aim is to understand how the presence of warm water of sub-tropical origin impacts upon the melt rates of tidewater glaciers on Greenland's south east coast.

My current focus is on processes of mass loss occuring at tidewater glaciers in south east Greenland. I use a fluid dynamics code called Fluidity for numerical modelling and validate this with scaled lab models of the same processes. I mainly focus on subglacial discharge plumes, but have an interest in how the quantites of mixing compare to that caused by iceberg calving.
