Eric Lutz is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Glaciology
Research Group of the Department of Earth Sciences. As a snow
scientist with a broad interest in cold regions phenomena, Eric has
conducted research in glaciology (University of Innsbruck), snow and
avalanche science (SLF-Davos,Montana State University), and
hydrologic and climate change modeling (University of Washington).
His current research with Bob Hawley and Erich Osterberg aims to
characterize the spatial and temporal variability of snow and firn on
the Greenland Ice Sheet using a range of field and remote sensing
methodologies. These studies will improve our understanding of firn
densification and our ability to assess the impacts of climate change
and variability on polar ice sheets. For more information, visit his personal page.
