History and Stability of the Marine Cryosphere in Northwestern Greenland
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

This project will study the stability and deglacial history of the marine cryosphere in the area of Petermann Glacier, the largest point of ice drainage for the northwestern Greenland Ice Sheet. Petermann Glacier lost nearly 40% of ...

Arctic Ocean bottom temperatures and bathymetry: Critical parameters for Earth system feedback studies
01/01/2013 - 31/12/2017
Detta projekt syftar till att undersöka två kritiska parametrar för studier av klimatets återkopplingsmekanismer i Arktis under den senaste istidscykeln: Arktiska oceanens bottenvattentemperaturer och bottentopografi. Projektet bygger på analyser av be...

The Arctic Ocean pleistocene evolution of sea ice, ice sheets and ocean circulation
01/01/2009 - 31/12/2011
This project aims to decipher the Arctic Ocean evolution of sea ice, ice sheets, and ocean circulation that comprise key components of the climate system. The project is built on an extensive geological, geophysical and oceanographic data set collected during the two icebreaker e...

History of, and mechanisms leading to, post-LGM retreat of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
01/01/2009 - 31/12/2010
The proposed project calls for an investigation of mechanisms that led to the retreat of the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) from the Antarctic continental shelf since the Last Glacial Maximum. These potential mechanisms include sea level rise, thinning due to rapid ice stream...

A proposal for a hull mounted multibeam sonar and subbottom profiler on the icebreaker Oden for marine geoscientific research in the Arctic Ocean
01/01/2007 - 31/12/2007
The past 50 years have seen remarkable technological advancements in the field of geophysical seafloor mapping. The development of the multibeam bathymetric sonar represents one major breakthrough and the chirp subbottom profiler another. Multibeam mapping involves the use of man...
