About us

Ice and ClimatE Research at Sheffield (ICERS) is a research group based in the Department of Geography, University of Sheffield, previously existing informally but set up and expanded in 2014 with new investments from the University.

Our group now consists of 13 academic staff, 2 research fellows, 3 postdoctoral scientists,  13 PhD students and 13 students on our MSc in Polar and Alpine Change. We research scientific problems spanning the fields of glaciology, palaeoglaciology, climatology, Quaternary science and with a focus on polar and alpine and formerly glaciated regions.

Our research employs fieldwork and modelling on Earth’s major ice sheets, namely Greenland, Antarctic, Laurentide and British-Irish ice sheets, aimed at monitoring current and reconstructing past changes in mass balance, dynamics and extent and furthering knowledge of the processes that accomplish such changes (including surface and ocean melt, basal sliding, subglacial hydrology, lakes and bedforms, calving and iceberg propagation). We also investigate mountain glaciers and icefields in the Arctic (notably Svalbard) and the Himalaya (notably, the Everest region) with a focus on biogeochemistry of ice masses, snow and permafrost and on processes and significance of debris cover on glaciers and glacier change. Our climatological interests span the globe and include work on North Atlantic Ocean responses to meltwater inputs, the Southern Hemisphere Atmospheric Circulation and regional climate modelling of alpine regions.
