Glaciology Research

Welcome to Erin Pettit’s Glaciology Research Group in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. We explore glaciers and ice sheets and their role in global climate and climate change through geophysical field observations and numerical modeling. We are part of the UAF Glaciology Group and the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and affiliated with the Geophysical Institute.

Please email me if you are interested in applying for a Ph.D or Master's Degree.
