SPRI Review 2004: NERC Arctic Science Adviser

NERC Arctic Science Adviser

Professor Liz Morris (the NERC Arctic Science Adviser) continues to be based at the Institute, on secondment from the British Antarctic Survey. Her role is to help develop and facilitate new Earth System Science initiatives which require Arctic expertise and to provide a focal point for UK research activities in the Arctic. Considerable work has been done concerning UK plans for the Arctic research component of the forthcoming International Polar Year in 2007. Liz Morris, Julian Dowdeswell and Michael Bravo are all members of the UK International Polar Year Committee. Field programmes on the Greenland Ice Sheet have also been undertaken, with research centred on observations of the characteristics of the ice-sheet surface related to the calibration of the CryoSat satellite and funded by NERC.
