Timothy Bartholomaus is an earth scientist and glaciologist. He studies the factors controlling the motion and mass loss of glaciers and ice sheets. He is an educator who instills in his students and the public an appreciation for earth’s dynamism and the scientific process.
- glacier dynamics (the factors that make a glacier speed up or slow down, advance or retreat),
- the generation and transmission of seismic waves,
- iceberg calving and submarine melt at the fronts of tidewater glaciers,
- water flow through and beneath glaciers, and
- processes that act on and shape the earth’s surface.
Dr. Bartholomaus is an Assistant Professor at the University of Idaho, in Moscow, ID. He was formerly a Research Associate and Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, in Austin, TX. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from the University of Alaska in Fairbanks in December 2013, completed a master’s degree at the University of Colorado Boulder, and a bachelor’s degree at Dartmouth College.
This fall, I’ve moved to the University of Idaho to begin work as an Assistant Professor and expand my lab group. I’ve begun working with a graduate student who will work with glaciohydraulic... READ MORE

The Uummannaq region of West Greenland is a spectacular area of steep cliffs, icefalls, and long fjords. While on a NASA-funded research project to better understand the connections between water in these fjords... READ MORE
I’ve begun tweeting, under the handle @TimBartholomaus. I’m commenting about glaciology, sea level rise, climate science, polar and alpine field work, and science in general. You can follow my posts, with or without... READ MORE
