Forskning

Jag är professor i glaciologi, med inriktning mot klimat, vid Stockholms universitet. Jag disputerade i ämnet naturgeografi år 1988 och blev docent i glaciologi 1992. Min avhandling berörde massbalans och glacialhydrologi vid Storglaciären och Mikkaglaciären. Från 1988 tog jag det finansiella ansvaret för forskningsverksamheten vid Tarfala forskningsstation och mellan åren 1996 och 2004 var jag stationens föreståndare. Efter 2004 har jag kvar intressen i Tarfala för monitoringprogrammen samt för de forskningsprogram som jag driver, eller är delaktig i. Ett sådant projekt berör permafrostutbredning i Sverige idagoch hur den kan väntas komma att förändras i framtiden.
Expeditioner till Arktis och Antarktis har tidigt präglat min verksamhet. Från mitt deltagande i Ymer-80 expeditionen fram till de planer som nu ligger med en japansk-svensk antarktisexpedition där jag är ansvarig för det svenska forskningsprogrammet. Jag har deltagit i 6 större polarexpeditioner.
Sedan början av 1990-talet har jag arbetat med utredningar och granskningar åt SKI. En utredning gällde Weichselnedisningen i Sverige och en kommande behandlar peramfrostutbredning. Granskningarna gäller SKBs forskningsrapporter.
Jag representerar Sverige inom en rad internationella organisationer och nätverk, såsom SCAR-SSG-PS, IASC-VAW, WGMS. Nationellt så arbetar jag med polarfrågor i koppling mot VR och lokalt på universitetet ansvarar jag för fakultetens docentberedning, är informationsansvarig på vår institution och ansvarar för mastersprogrammet glaciärer och polarmiljöer.

Public relations

I am attending public (and commercial)TV and radio programmes on Polar or glacier issues five to seven  times per year.  I am often interviewed by writing journalists on newspaper and I am fond of writing popular science and I give public lectures several times per year. This year (2012) I will launch a popular science book about glaciers.
