Dr. Xianwei Wang is a remote sensing scientist, currently working in the Center for global Sea Level Change, New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE. He is interested in three-dimension changes of Thwaites Glacier and how Thwaites Glacier responsed to the surrounding warm ocean. He went to ice camp on Thwaites Glacier Front in February 2020 with KOPRI to install GPS and ApRES to detect the glacier motion and how rapidly the warm ocean can melt the ice base. His research for MELT combines satellite observations and ground measurements to better understand the glacier-ocean interactions in this region.
