High Latitude Oceans and Climate

About the lab

We seek to improve our understanding of the high latitude oceans, ice, and atmosphere, and their interaction, by engaging in rigorous, fundamental research that is attentive to the needs of society. We use innovative methods to collect and analyze data from remote, challenging, and undersampled polar regions, and combine this with models and theory to unravel the inner workings of the climate system. We are driven by a scientific curiosity, a sense of wonder and awe for the natural world, and a commitment to document and understand the ongoing rapid climate change in the polar regions. By sharing our findings with other scientists, the general public, and policymakers, we seek to engage and inform people on the physical science of polar regions. We strongly believe that scientific understanding is necessary for sustainable and sound decision making. As a group, we aim to build an open, stimulating environment in which junior scientists can mature and find their own path forward.
