I am Dr. Aslak Grinsted.

The photo shows me in a crevasse near Scharffenbergbotnen, Antarctica doing some rope work. Photo taken by J.Moore.
Main research interests:
  • Glaciers and Ice sheets.
  • Any long instrumental records of climate.
  • Statistical modelling of climate.
  • Sea level rise, Sea ice extent, tropical-polar interactions, ice core interpretation, ice flow modelling, hurricanes, extreme events, ...

  • Homogeneous record of Atlantic hurricane surge threat since 1923 Abstract: Detection and attribution of past changes in cyclone activity are hampered by biased cyclone records due to changes in observational capabilities. Here we construct an independent record of Atlantic ...
