I research ice and climate. In particular, I investigate the behaviour of Antarctic glaciers in the geological past, in order to better understand the response of ice sheets, and corresponding sea level, to a changing climate.
This blog primarily focuses on my scientific expeditions to Antarctica.
I’ll let the quotes of others proceed…
“The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.” – Henri Poincare
“…A man who keeps company with glaciers comes to feel tolerably insignificant by and by. The Alps and the glaciers together are able to take every bit of conceit out of a man and reduce his self-importance to zero if he will only remain within the influence of their sublime presence long enough to give it a fair and reasonable chance to do its work.” – Mark Twain
“Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, maybe we should control the population to ensure the survival of the environment.” – David Attenborough
