John Bennett John Bennett Cryospheric Expert John works at Noetix Research, creating web applications for satellite imagery in northern Canada, especially for use in coastal communities.
Monique Bernier Monique Bernier River Ice Expert Monique specializes in remote sensing applied to water resources, particularly snow, river ice, peat bogs, and soil moisture.
Ross Brown Ross Brown Snow Expert Ross' focus is documenting and understanding variability and change in the Canadian cryosphere, particularly snow cover, and is a contributing author to the IPCC assessments.
Liam Colgan Liam Colgan Glacier Expert Liam uses a combination of computer modelling, satellite remote sensing and field observations to study the interaction between climate and glaciers, specifically the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Chris Derksen Chris Derksen Snow Expert Chris uses airborne and satellite remote sensing to study the state, variability, and change of the cryosphere, including its role in the global climate system.
Claude Duguay Claude Duguay Lake Ice Expert Claude directs the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change at the U. of Waterloo. His research focuses on climate-cryosphere interactions, hydrology, remote sensing, and modelling.
Chris Fletcher Chris Fletcher Modelling Expert Chris specializes in using state-of-the-art computer models to understand the impact of climate change on atmospheric patterns over Canada, the US and Europe, on timescales from seasons to decades.
Tom Hirose Tom Hirose Cryospheric Expert Tom is the President of Noetix Research Inc. which specializes in remote sensing and GIS for land and marine applications, including the Floe Edge sea ice service.
Stephen Howell Stephen Howell Sea Ice Expert Steve's research focuses on developing new knowledge on the cryosphere and the Arctic climate system, particularly sea ice in the Canadian Arctic using remote sensing.
Richard Kelly Richard Kelly Snow Expert Richard's research interests are in hydrology and measurement of snow and ice from satellites to estimate water storage in snowpacks and cryospheric response to global environmental change.
John Yackel John Yackel Sea Ice Expert John Is a sea ice geophysicist and climatologist with interests in atmosphere/marine/terrestrial cryosphere interactions and specialization in remote sensing and sea ice.
