Landscape in Sicily


We explore the impact of climate change on the environment and snow, ice, and glaciers across the world

This research group has seen recent investment, with a growing number of members contributing to world-leading research – particularly in volcanic material – and reconstructing climate change more generally.

We have a global reach, with collaborations, research and pioneering work across nearly every continent, and a strong focus on research into snow, ice and glaciers.

Recent research projects

The group has seen recent investment and now has a professor, 3 readers and 4 more junior staff - it has areas of emerging world-leading excellence in research, particularly in tephra (volcanoes) and reconstructing climate change more generally. It has a global outward looking focus, with research and collaborators on nearly all continents. It also has a strong cryospheric (snow, ice and glaciers) focus.
