Research summary

My research principally involves the application of geodetic techniques for observing, understanding & modelling the physical properties of Arctic sea ice. I use tools such as Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), satellite laser & radar altimetry, and complex polarimetric radar to study sea ice surface roughness and the way sea ice melts during Arctic summer months. Remote sensing data are complimented by field observations of the seasonally-changing ocean-sea ice-atmosphere system, collected during dedicated fieldwork campaigns in the Canadian Arctic.

I am currently a Research Fellow of the European Space Agency EOScience4Society Living Planet Program.

Ongoing projects include:

- Operation IceBridge Validation ...

Jack is a Lecturer in Geodesy at the University of Bristol. He completed an Undergraduate Degree (B.Sc.) in Physical Geography at the University of Durham, U.K. in 2009, followed by a Masters Degree by Research (M.Sc. Res.), specialising in airborne LiDAR remote sensing, at the same institution in 2011. He completed his doctorate (Ph.D.), specialising in Arctic sea ice geophysics and remote sensing through LiDAR & satellite altimetry, at the University of Manitoba, Canada in 2016. Between 2016-2017 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Manitoba, using satellite laser & radar altimetry to ...
