The IGERT Winter Seminar Series will continue on February 24, 2015 with
speaker Ian Joughin.

Dr. Joughin is a glaciologist working at the Polar Science Center to
determine how the flow of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will make
contributions to current and future rates of sea level change. His work
mainly involves working with satellite data to measure the velocity of ice
streams and outlet glaciers, conducting ground- and airborne-based field
work to obtain additional ice flow measurements, and using these data in
conjunction with ice-sheet models to understand the physics that control
ice flow. He also is an affiliate of the Earth and Space Science Department
at UW where he supervises graduate students working on a variety of
ice-sheet related projects.

He did his graduate work at the Polar Science Center, where he focused on
developing methods for using spaceborne interferometry to measure
topography and ice flow velocity in Greenland. After getting his PhD, he
moved to Pasadena to work at the Jet Propulsion Lab, where he continued to
use satellite remote sensing to study ice sheets. After 9 years at JPL, he
has returned to the Polar Science Center. Since then he has made a more
than dozen field trips to Greenland and Antarctica.

Please join us for his talk, entitled "Ice Ocean Interaction in Greenland
and Antarctica", from 4:30 - 5:30, Tuesday, February 24, 2015, in Fisheries
102. A reception with food and beverages will follow.

On behalf of all IPOC affiliates,
