Bryn Hubbard's research interests
Research interests include:
investigations of the links between ice motion and subglacial drainage via hot-water borehole access. Link to CRIOS and SAFIRE projects here.
ice shelf structure and ice characteristics, including ice coring and hot-water drilling. Link to MIDAS project here.
the physical character of glacier ice and basal ice.
optical televiewing (OPTV) of boreholes in glaciers, ice sheets and ice shelves. Link to OPTV here.
testing at Tsanfleuron Glacier, Switzerland.
structural glaciology and sediment transfer at Midre Lovénbreen, Svalbard.
ice shelf structure at Roi Baudouin Ice Shelf, Antarctica.
ice sheet structure at the NEEM deep borehole, Greenland.
ice shelf structure on Larsen C Ice Shelf, Antarctica. Link to MIDAS project here.
ice mass structure in relation to motion processes and sediment transfer.
causes and consequences of the formation of basal ice.
the structure and dynamics of glacial lakes and drainage systems.
subglacial sediment characteristics.
the occurrence and physical characteristics of glacier-like forms on Mars.
Research experience: twenty six consecutive years of field-based research programmes on glaciers and ice shelves in Greenland, Antarctica, Svalbard, the European Alps, Peru, the Canadian Rockies, Norway, and the Canadian High Arctic.
