Chris is a glacial geologist and palaeoclimatologist, who uses direct geochronological techniques to reconstruct the configuration of the Earths ice sheets over timescales from centuries to millennia. His research aims to improve estimates of the past contribution of ice sheets to sea level rise to enable better prediction of future sea-level rise. It also adds an important long-term perspective on recent observations of rapid ice sheet in the polar ice sheets from remote sensing and empirical observations. Ongoing research projects include understanding the response over millennia to climate forcing in locations ranging from Greenland, Svalbard, Patagonia and Antarctica. Chris is also a Honorary Fellow at The University of Exeter.
