Dr Tom Slater
I am a Research Fellow in Earth Observation of the Polar Regions at the University of Leeds. I primarily use satellites to study the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, with a focus on satellite radar altimetry, which measures changes in ice height over time. I am also interested in quantifying the ice sheet contribution to the global sea level and understanding the human impacts of sea level rise. As well as studying the ice sheets themselves, I am interested in developing techniques in altimeter processing and validating satellite measurements.
Science Communication and Engagement
I enjoy both writing and speaking about my work and areas of expertise to all ages and audiences. Some examples of my writing for public audiences are listed below:
- Remote sensing of the cryosphere
- Ice sheet contribution to sea level rise
- PhD, 'Mapping Ice Sheet Elevation and Elevation Change Using CryoSat-2 Radar Altimetry'
- MPhys Physics (Class I)
- BSc (Hons) Physics (Class I)
