Research overview

Dr Cowton's research focusses on the mechanisms controlling the response of glaciers, and in the particular the Greenland Ice Sheet, to climate change. Through a combination of field, modelling and remote sensing techniques, he has published research on themes including ice sheet hydrology, tidewater glacier processes and the physical oceanography of fjord systems.

PhD research projects available

I would be happy to supervise PhD research on a range of topics in glaciology, in particular those relating to marine-terminating glaciers.
