Dr Tom Slater
I am a Research Fellow in land ice altimetry at the University of Leeds, working in the NERC Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling. I primarily use satellites to study the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, with a focus on satellite radar altimetry, which maps changes in ice height over time. I am also interested in measuring the ice sheet contribution to global sea level rise and understanding potential human impacts. As well as studying the ice sheets themselves, I am interested in developing techniques in altimeter processing and validating satellite measurements.
