Matthew R. Siegfried

PHYSICAL GLACIOLOGIST
 

ABOUT ME

I am a physical glaciologist primarily investigating processes occurring at the ice-bed interface of the Antarctic ice sheet. I collect and synthesize ground-, air-, and space-based datasets in an effort to span the spatial (centimeters to 100s of km) and temporal (hours to centuries) scales on which these processes occur. Because the ice-bed interface, hidden beneath 10s to 1000s of meters of ice, lies at an intersection between glaciology, hydrology, geology, microbiology, and oceanography, I strive to work with a diverse set of researchers to create a unique perspective on the role of subglacial processes within the larger global Earth system. As a polar scientist, I am committed to maintaining an open discussion of the changing cryosphere. I have collaborated with a range of institutions, from local elementary schools to the U.S. State Department, to facilitate our conversation about the local, regional, and global impacts of changes at the Earth's poles.

There are many extremely talented photographers in my line of work.

I, however, am not one of them. 

Regardless, I try to take pictures where ever I end up because who knows when the next time I, or anyone else, will be there. I am happy to let most anyone use my pictures for their own purposes with appropriate attribution, as long as you ask first. I have reduced the resolution for the photos linked below; send me an email for the full resolution versions.
