Cold Regions


Cold regions research in Newcastle Physical Geography addresses questions with major societal impacts, such as sea level rise, water resources and natural hazards. Our work integrates field research, remote sensing and numerical modelling, to further our understanding of cold-regions and their response to climate change. We work globally, with research sites including Antarctica, Greenland and the Himalaya. Our research encompasses a range of sub-themes, including glacier response to climate change, glacial lake outburst floods, hillslope processes and periglacial landscapes.
