Dr David Gwyther

Dr Gwyther, PhD student, spent twelve months at the University of Texas at Austin through his Fulbright Scholarship. He studied the interaction between the ocean and the Antarctic ice shelves. His project aimed to improve simulations of ice shelves in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, leading to improved understanding of ice shelf melting, ice sheet flow and global sea level rise.

Dr Gwyther worked with the ICECAP program, one of the most comprehensive airborne observing systems that exists, to measure properties of ice shelves in the Totten ice shelf region of East Antarctica.
