Dr Sue Cook

Dr. Cook's main research interest is the calving of icebergs, and its impact on wider glacier dynamics, investigated by the numerical modeling of ice flow.

View Profile

Dr Stuart Corney

Dr Corney is a Physical and Ecosystem Modeller interested in high-resolution climate modelling and how output from climate models can be best be used to inform changes in areas such as Southern Ocean marine ecosystems, water availability and changes to the likelihood and intensity of extreme events.
