Observing the Earth’s glaciers & ice sheets from the ground, air, and space

The Mines Glaciology Laboratory is a research group in the Department of Geophysics at Colorado School of Mines that uses satellite remote sensing techniques in combination with field-based and airborne geophysical methods to understand physical processes of Earth’s glaciers and ice sheets. The team, led by Matthew R. Siegfried, collects and synthesizes ground-, air-, and space-based datasets in an effort to span the spatial (centimeters to 100s of kilometers) and temporal (minutes to centuries) scales on which these processes occur. We aim to apply creative, geophysical approaches to overcome the inherent difficulty of observing continent-scale ice masses that drive and react to other components of the Earth’s global climate system in order to develop new insight into ice-sheet evolution.

Welcome

Thanks for stopping by the new home of the Mines Glaciology Laboratory. Our website is currently (and will likely always be) a work in progress. For the latest happenings, check us out on Twitter, stop by our lab in the Department of Geophysics, or get in touch by e-mail. We are also always looking for motivated, enthusiastic students and early-career researchers to join our research group; drop us a line if you are interested in research opportunities with us.
