The Glacier Dynamics group at the University of Idaho consists of team members working and learning together to reveal the factors controlling the rapid response of glaciers and ice sheets to environmental forcings. They use seismology and other geophysical techniques to understand glacier dynamics, including iceberg calving, water flow through glaciers, and the ice flow response to variable glacier hydrology.

Group researchers are identified below.  Click here if you would like to learn about joining our group.

 

 

Dr. Timothy Bartholomaus is the lead scientist and principal investigator. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Idaho, with Affiliate status in the Department of Geology. Tim joined the University of Idaho faculty in 2016, after working as a Research Associate at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. He has led or participated in over 20 field expeditions to glaciers in Alaska, Greenland, Antarctica, and the continental U.S.

Margot Vore is a Masters Student in the Department of Geography. She is applying seismology and other quantitative methods to understand how the hydrologic system beneath glaciers varies over time. Shortly after arriving at UI, she visited Taku Glacier, in Southeast Alaska, where she helped recover the seismic data that will serve as the foundation for her thesis. Margot joined us in August 2016.Margot Vore in the mountains
