The research enhances the assessment of glacial change to refine understanding of climate trends, supporting development of sustainable engineering strategies for the UK.
In order to improve understanding of processes such as sea level rises and climate change, there is a requirement for enhanced assessment of historical and present-day glacial change in sensitive polar regions such as the Antarctic Peninsula. Vulnerable coastal societies such as the UK require better, more reliable estimates of sea level rise which the research looks at, and such information is essential in shaping government policy and mitigating impacts upon exisiting infrastructure.
