Research overview

Subglacial volcanic eruptions can produce sudden floods of meltwater, together with major disruption to air traffic if the eruption penetrates the ice surface.  My research seeks to gain a better understanding of the physical processes involved in ice melting and glacier penetration during explosive subglacial eruptions.  Progress so far has been primarily through the application of engineering heat transfer theory.  My part-time, self-funded PhD is supervised by Dr Jennie Gilbert and Dr Steve   Lane.
