Glacier Science

For the past twenty five years Phil has led and participated in numerous scientific expeditions to locations ranging from the frozen wastes of the High Arctic to the high peaks of the Himalaya. Fieldwork planned for 2016 will take place in the European Alps and in Svalbard, Norwegian High-Arctic.

Phil‘s work focuses on the response of glaciers to a warming world and in particular, the impacts of warming on meltwater production and delivery. With a sizeable proportion of the world’s population directly or indirectly dependent on snow and ice melt for their water resources, never has this subject been of greater significance.
