Departmental Research Projects
Mr Felipe Napoleoni
I am interested on the ice sheet flow of West Antarctica and the role that subglacial hydrology has on it. In my PhD research I am using airborne radar and Ice Penetrating Radar (IPR) to characterise the subglacial interface of this region and to learn more about the subglacial hydrology of Ellsworth Subglacial Highlands in West Antarctica.
