Ryan North is a PhD student at the University of Wollongong studying landscape evolution and climate impacts in Antarctica. Ryan’s research investigates the geology, glaciology, and geomorphology of the past – what did Antarctica look like millions of years ago? Thousands of years? 50 years? He has extensive multidisciplinary experience in geochemistry, field geology, remote sensing and image processing. As part of SAEF, Ryan will extend the record of glacier and ice sheet change on the Antarctic Peninsula by decades to thousands of years using historical imagery and cosmogenic nuclide dating.
