The Ice & Ocean Group is a research group in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia focused on ice sheet and polar ocean changes. We employ sediments and landforms to explore former ice sheet margin migration, ice-bed interactions, processes that contribute to ice sheet change, and ocean conditions near marine-based ice sheets.
Funding for our research comes from the NSF Office of Polar Programs, International Union for Quaternary Research, UVA H.G. Goodell Endowment, and UVA Committee on Sustainability.
