Biography

Lenneke obtained her PhD in 2011 from the School of Physics, University of Melbourne, investigating spatial adiabatic passage techniques in mesoscopic electronic systems, focussing on quantum computing applications. She then focussed on scientific software development, working within the Scientific Databases and Visualisation group at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies in Germany. Her work there involved close collaboration with researchers in systems biology and biochemistry on designing and developing software for the managing and tracking of experimental data as well as web-based access to a curated reaction kinetics database. In 2013 she joined the Scientific Computing team at the Australian Synchrotron, working beamline scientists to develop software for data collection and workflows, automated processing and data analysis at a number of beamlines.

Research Themes

Lenneke's research aligns to the Marine, Antarctic and Maritime theme. Her research interests include understanding the influences of the ocean and other geophysical processes on the Antarctic ice sheets. She works as part of the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC project on ocean forced evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet and is part of the Antarctic Gateway Partnership Theme 3: Solid Earth-Cryosphere Interaction. Her research aims to improve understanding of the processes contributing to the changing ice sheets and their contribution to sea levels change.

Improving the description of ice flow in numerical models of Antarctica and Greenland (2016)$14,993
Description
Sea level rise is one of the great challenges facing society, with a projected increase of up to 0.98 m in mean sea level by the end of the 21st century (Church et al., 2013). The largest source of uncertainty in sea level rise projections is in the estimate of ice mass loss from the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets. This is in part due to overly simplified numerical descriptions of ice dynamic processes in ice sheet models, which can lead to underestimates of ice velocities by up to an order of magnitude (Treverrow et al., 2015). This project aims to improve the numerical description of ice flow in three state-of-the-art ice sheet models. We will use an ice flow relation that has been developed from extensive laboratory testing and that characterises all regimes of ice flow (Budd et al., 2013). We will compare the improved ice flow relation with the formulation currently implemented in most leading ice sheet models over idealised and realistic domains, the results of which will form the basis for two scientific papers. This work is of international significance as the results will be incorporated into three ice sheetmodels widely used by the international research community. An important consequence of our study is an advancement in ourunderstanding of estimates of ice mass loss through a more complete characterisation of ice dynamic processes. Through this improved understanding of ice mass loss, our work will lead to a reduction in the uncertainties associated with the contribution of Antarctica and Greenland ice mass loss to future sea level rise - one of the greatest climate change issues impacting humankind.
