Ginny’s research focuses on understanding the physics of glacier motion in order to improve the understanding of ice sheet mass loss. She is particularly interested in differentiating ice sheet changes that arise from natural or forced variability. Ginny also examines the basic physical processes that control ice motion and determine the history of ice flow to put recent changes into context. Her group employs a suite of geophysical and remote-sensing techniques to pursue these research interests.
