This project aims to test if past changes in ice sheet thickness can be used as a proxy for grounding line retreat using a range of techniques potentially including field, lab and desk based methods. There is the possibility of fieldwork in Antarctica and Northwest Scotland however fieldwork is not required for the project to be undertaken.
