Welcome to Dartmouth College's Glaciology Research Group's homepage! We use remote sensing, geophysical field studies, and quantitative analysis to investigate the form and flow of glaciers and ice sheets, from the large ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland, to smaller glaciers such as the Peyto and Athabasca glaciers in Alberta and British Columbia. Please check out who's involved, and have a look at our research projects and courses. We are always looking for energetic individuals with skills and interest in understanding the dynamics of Earth's cryosphere.
