Alex Brisbourne is a glaciologist at the British Antarctic Survey. He uses a range of geophysical techniques to investigate the properties of glacial ice and what lies beneath it, helping to better understand how the ice sheets will evolve with our changing climate.


Alex is a Principal Investigator on the GHOST project. He will travel to Antarctica in 2023/2024 to use seismic and radar methods to investigate the sediment, hydrology, and bedrock beneath the Thwaites Glacier, and help feed this information into models of how the glacier may evolve in the near future.
