Global Geophysical Modelling

Treating the planet Earth it as an entire coupled system this theme undertakes numerical modelling studies of its behaviour, from ice dynamics and post-glacial rebound to deep Earth mantle electromagnetism and studies of the global gravity field, principally using observations from satellites. Research in this theme encompasses both the global oceanographic and solid Earth systems with applications to understand ice sheet dynamics in polar regions, ocean circulatation patterns and thermal convection within the Earths mantle. Global Geophysical Modelling looks at the entire Earth system at a planetary scale, but is very much linked to seismology and marine geophytsical research.
