Dr Jonathan Carrivick is a senior lecturer in Physical Geography at the University of Leeds. He has 8 years research experience with extensive and intensive fieldwork in Iceland, Greenland, arctic Sweden and Norway, New Zealand, Antarctica. He has particular expertise of glacier mass balance methods, digital surveying, and of determining contemporary and Holocene ice-marginal activity from field analysis of geomorphology and sedimentology and from use of remote sensing methods. He has successfully developed GIS-based models of landscape change due to ice-margin interactions. He has also published papers on improving reconstructions of glacier limits and volumes by using DEMs and GIS. He has worked extensively as a land surveyor; specialising in high-resolution dGPS data acquisition, with geophysical companies both in the UK and abroad. His research has attracted a NERC NI Research Grant, two NERC ARSF-funded projects, a Royal Society Research Grant, the RGS Peter Fleming award and an ATANS FP6 and an INTERACT FP7 Transnational Training Grant. He is also presently a co-I on a NERC Urgency grant, and on a NERC AFI grant. He continues to bring together multi-disciplinary scientists and local authority personnel from across the world in collaborative partnerships. Over the last 6 years he has published > 25 peer-reviewed papers as first author and has supervised 5 PhD students.
