Attributions of Past Regional Sea-Level Variations and Projection of Future Sea-Level Changes; From Grounding Lines to Coastlines: An Integrated Approach to Barystatic Sea-Level Projections

Alex Gardner is a Research Scientist at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He earned a degree in Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from the University of Alberta and was a NSERC research fellow in the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences at the University of Michigan. Alex studies the Earth’s cryosphere (frozen Earth) with a particular focus on glaciers and ice sheets and their impacts on sea level rise and water resources. He is interested in how glaciers respond to natural and human induced forcings, as well as how changes in the reflectivity of snow and ice modify the Earth’s climate.
