I am Aslak Grinsted.

The photo shows me in a crevasse near Scharffenbergbotnen, Antarctica doing some rope work. Photo taken by J.Moore.

Non-exhaustive research interests:

  • Sea level rise, Sea ice extent, ice core interpretation, ice flow modelling, hurricanes, extreme events, ...
  • Glaciers and Ice sheets.
  • Remote sensing and computer vision (ImGRAFT). 
  • Any long instrumental records of climate.
  • Statistical modelling of climate from local to global scales.
