Broad research specialisms:

General description of research

I am an earth scientist with over 30 years research experience in geomorphological and earth surface system responses to climate change.  My research focuses on the impacts of climate change on high mountain glacial systems over a range of timescales.

 I am perhaps best known for developing the first broad assessments of Holocene glacier behaviour in Patagonia and in developing the first three-dimensional reconstruction of the Patagonian Ice Sheet (around 40 papers published since 1992).  I have also helped pioneer the global investigation of rock glaciers as sources of water supplies in arid mountains, and produced the first global assessment of glacial lake outburst floods (see papers by my PhD students Rangecroft and Jones since 2008, and Harrison et al 2018; in submission).   I have championed the significance of paraglaciation as a driver of climate impacts in high mountains and have led much of the recent research on geomorphological sensitivity to climate change (papers with Jasper Knight since 2005 and Harrison 2009).  My work in the broad field of climate impacts and adaptation has meant that I am at the forefront of the UK’s climate impacts policy.  Between 2011 and 2017 I lead the Climate Change Expert Committee and am now a member of the Expert Panel on Natural Hazards, which advises the UK Government on the impacts of climate change on all UK nuclear power sites.  I am regularly asked to advise government organisations, industry and NGOs on climate impacts (e.g. with Lloyd’s of London; Dfid; CRIDF; UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Oxfam). 

 

I have worked in many of the world’s high mountain regions (South American Andes and Patagonia for 17 field seasons; High Mountain Asia for 8 field seasons; Scandinavia and European Alps for 5 field seasons) and with my research on the links between geomorphology and climate change I am one of relatively few earth scientists to routinely publish in both geomorphological and climate science journals.
