Daniel Goldberg is a senior lecturer in glaciology at the University of Edinburgh. He is interested in the interaction between ocean circulation and ice-sheet dynamics and how to better represent this and related processes in numerical models. He has developed the lightweight ice-sheet model STREAMICE, one of the models used in PROPHET.
Goldberg is a co-investigator on the PROPHET project. He will work with the team to combine existing computer simulations of ice and ocean near the Thwaites Glacier, to improve models to reduce the uncertainty in the projection of the glacier’s behavior and subsequent contribution to sea level rise in the future.
