I’m a climate scientist at the Centre for Ice and Climate, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. I work with sea level rise, extreme events, cryosphere, ice cores, remote sensing… I am also a family man with a wife and two girls.

At the moment I am migrating to this new site from www.glaciology.net. Eventually, I will point www subdomain to this site. But at the moment this site is still quite experimental.


Does Katex work?

[Grinsted et al. 'wrongly claim' a too large local tide gauge rate]: Our claim is based on the supplementary material to Engelhart et al. which can be downloaded here. The figure in question is reproduced in the column on the right. look for X=2950 km. If anything our 4mm/yr claim seems too low!
