Annika Horlings

Graduate Student | Department of Earth and Space Sciences

My primary research interests are in glaciology, specifically in using modeling and ice-penetrating radar to study how changes in near-surface and englacial processes of glaciers and ice sheets impact calculations of their mass balance. I currently use ice-penetrating radar to quantify the inland migration of surface meltwater stored within the firn (i.e., intermediate material between snow and glacier ice) of the Greenland ice sheet. My advisor is Knut Christianson in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences. I am a 2019-2020 P-GraSC member.
