Dr Guy Williams is an observational polar oceanographer specialising in the use of autonomous observation platforms, from AUVs and UAVs to instrumented elephant seals, to study ocean/sea ice interactions around Antarctica.

Career summary

Qualifications

DegreeThesis titleUniversityCountryAwarded
PhDAdélie Land Bottom WaterUniversity of TasmaniaAustralia2004
BSc (1st Class Hons)Numerical modelling of the response of Heard Island glacier to climate changeUniversity of TasmaniaAustralia1998
GradDip (Object-Oriented Programming) Computer Power Training InstituteAustralia1997

Languages (other than English)

Guy has skills in communicating in Japanese and French, following his post-doctoral time in those countries.

Biography

Guy moved to Tasmania in 1998, translating a confused background in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Sydney into an Honours project at UTAS, modelling the dynamics of Heard Island glaciers. Thereafter he completed a PhD in observational physical oceanography, falling deeply in love with the production of cold, salty Antarctic Bottom Water. Completing post-doctoral positions in Hobart, Sapporo and Paris, Guy returned to the ACE CRC in 2011 to successfully lead an 'Autonomous Underwater Vehicle under Sea Ice' project in October 2012. A veteran of seven polar research voyages and nearly a year at sea, he now resides at IMAS as an ARC Future Fellow, happy to let elephant seals and robots collect data for him.

Research Themes

Guy's research addresses the University's Marine, Antarctic and Maritime, the Environment, Resources and Sustainability, and the Data, Knowledge and Decisions research themes.

Teaching

Teaching expertise

Part-time lecturer in Quantitative Marine Science courses (Oceanography, Antarctic Science, Remote Sensing)

Advancing wave-ice models of Antarctic sea ice with autonomous observations (2017 - 2019)$246,500
Description
The Project aims to design and execute autonomous observations above (unmanned aerial vehicles), below(autonomous underwater vehicles) and within (wave-ice interaction buoys) Antarctic sea ice on upcominginternational Antarctic research voyages. The intended outcome is to advance the parameterisation of wave-iceinteraction, critical to the seasonal advance and retreat of Antarctic sea ice, in climate models which currently failto reproduce the observed trends in regional Antarctic sea ice extent. The anticipated goal is the improvedprediction of the responses and feedbacks of sea ice to changes in ocean and atmospheric forcing around theSouthern Ocean. This work will place Australia at the forefront of polar climate research.

Seals as Oceanographic Samplers (2015 - 2018)$1,090,800
Description
The Antarctic and the surrounding Southern Ocean are one of the most important, yet least observed of marine habitats. Connecting all the worlds oceans, the physical structure of the Southern Ocean profoundly influences world climate and ecology, and plays a key role in global climate. Within the IMOS program we use satellite linked data loggers that measure physical ocean properties (specifically salinity, temperature and depth) to depths of up to 2000m. Merging oceanography with marine mammal ecology advances our understanding of the worlds oceans and its top predators, and allow us to predict how these species will be affected by future climate changes. This study collects important data on ocean properties throughout the Antarctic winter data previously unavailable but crucially important to oceanographic and climate studies. Importantly this study builds on an existing continuous eight year time-series of annual oceanographic measurements between Davis and Kergeulen.

Ocean forced evolution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet (2015)$50,365
Description
Preparing for the impacts of sea level rise needs an improved understand of the response of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to changing ocean conditions. Over the last decade it has become clear that more ocean driven melting beneath ice shelves is causing the Antarctic Ice Sheet to lose ice at an increasing rate, contributing to sea-level rise. This project will explain the role of the ocean in controlling this dynamic behavior of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. We will use state-of-the-art numerical modelling and available observations to determine the key processes that govern how the Antarctic ice flows into the oceans, together with the assessment of possible future change. This proposal will provide improved understanding of the processes controlling ice sheet and sea level and will help to provide realistic estimates of freshwater and heat transport in a global ocean context.

An integrated study of Antarctic land-fast sea ice physical and biological processes (2015)$0
Description
Land-fast sea ice (fast ice) is a pre-eminent feature of the Antractic coastal zone, is a senstitive indicator and modulator of Antarctic marine ecosystems. This joint Australia - New Zealand multi-disciplinary project will improve understanding of, and measurement capability for, coupled physical-biological processes in Antarctic fast ice. By combining field experiments, the use of automated observatories, historical data collation, satellite observations and statisitical modelling, the project will provide new data on local-to-circum-Antarctic scales. A key output of the project will be a physically-informed model of the seasonal development and fate of Antarctic fast-ice associated algal biomass. Furthermore, analyses will enhance the understanding of sea ice in Antarctic climate processes and will be utilised to improve parameterisation and evalutation of sea ice physical models.

Autonomous platforms and biotagging data: new approaches for understanding variability and change across the Antarctic ocean/sea-ice climate system (2013 - 2017)$755,320
Description
This study aims to advance our ability to assess and monitor climate change across the Antarctic ocean/seaice system. Ocean/sea-ice interactions have a critical role in the global climate and there is an urgent need to determine how these are responding to climate change. To do this effectively, we need to overcome gaps in existing observational datasets that currently limit our understanding of spatiotemporal variability and change in ocean around Antarctica. This study will use two new approaches, biotagging and autonomous platforms, to greatly improve our capacity to model and predict the impacts of climate change on the Antarctic ocean/sea ice system and beyond.

Collaborative Autosub Science Extreme Environments - Travel Bursary (2007)$6,908
Description
CASEE Travel Bursary to travel to the United Kingdom and continue working with Dr Jeremy Wilkinson on the JR106a Autosub dataset. In particular, our goals were to Quantify the hydrographic observations collected beneath the NOIB; Examine the CTD water mass properties with the 3-D thickness profiles from the Autosubs multibeam instrument; and Examine past satellite imagery to build a conceptual model of the processes that resulting in the observed structure and composition of the NOIB.
