Research
Scientific Research (2002-2014): Projections of future Arctic sea ice distributions of thickness, concentration and area from simulations of global climate models. Determination of Arctic sea ice thickness with upward-looking echo-sounders and multibeam sonars mounted on submarines. Sea ice concentrations, sea ice area, sea ice extent and length of the ice-free season in recent decades from passive microwave satellite data. Convective activity in the Greenland Sea and its relation to sea ice production from data collected with acoustic shadowgraphs in the Greenland Sea. Scientific Research (Pre-2002): Quark and gluon parton distributions. Structure of the hadrons. Non perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics. Research for the United Kingdom Admiralty (2003-2005): Study of recent sea ice conditions in the Southern Ocean, the Baltic Sea, Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy, the South Coast of Norway, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Greenland Sea, Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, the Russian Arctic and the Canadian Arctic. The results were presented to the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office in the form of reports later used to update nine Nautical Pilots.
