The research work of the Institute is focused around several research groups, each of which has a mix of senior academic staff, post-doctoral researchers and postgraduate students. The work of the groups is supported by a series of research grants, which are listed below. The groups are:

  • Glaciology and Climate Change
  • Glacimarine Sedimentary Environments
  • Sea Ice and Polar Oceanography
  • Polar Landscapes and Remote Sensing
  • NERC Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (collaborative with UCL and Bristol)
  • Polar Social Science and Humanities

A selection of the physical and social science research projects in which we are currently engaged are outlined briefly below.
