Undergraduate Research Associate
Jason Bott is a geophysics (B.S.) student at The University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and an undergraduate research associate at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. Jason’s research covers radiometry and coastline mapping under the Devon Ice Cap, Canada. In addition, he’s working on the thermal and kinematic modeling of Haynes Glacier, Antarctica to hypothesis test for the source of a mysterious velocity anomaly near the grounding line.
During his time at UT, Jason has been recognized through the Jackson Scholars Program and has made the UT Honors List three consecutive times. After completing his undergraduate degree, he’s looking forward to pursuing a doctoral degree in geophysics.
