Each year, The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) sends teams of researchers to Greenland and Antarctica to gain a better understanding of ice sheets, climate, and polar settings. These teams are comprised of researchers, Ph.D. students and graduate students who travel with a distinct purpose, return to Austin to complete their research, and then share their findings with the world.
For more information:
- Follow Catania Glaciology Group for updates on Associate Professor Ginny Catania’s ongoing research projects including the recent field work in Greenland.
- Read articles and bios on the UTIG website about researchers and their work in the cryosphere.
- Check out UTIG’s write up on Research Associate Timothy Bartholomaus’ recently-published research on new methods for measuring subglacial discharge.
Return to this page often as UTIG has three teams headed to Antarctica in the winter of 2015-2016 who will be reporting back regularly. Or, contact us.
