Dr. Hilmar Gudmundsson conducts research in glaciology with a specific focus on the future evolution of glaciers and ice sheets in a warming world.

As a Lead Principal Investigator on the PROPHET project, Gudmundsson and his team will 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.
