Pollution, climate change and other changes in the environment are all of great interest.

Wildfires. Particulate matter pollution.

Climate / Glaciology

The WAIS ice streams

Studies of water at the base and sliding, ice streams, Mýrdalsjökul, jökulhlaup, and more.

Anisotropy of ice

Single crystal velocity gradient in uniaxial compression, deformation by basal sliding only

Ice has an extremely strong plastic anisotropy, which has a strong influence on the deformation.

Physics of the Earth

 Surtsey interior based on gravity modeling

Anisotropy in the mantle.  Model of the interior of Surtsey.
