Dr. Tom Bradwell

Research interests:

I am a geoscientist interested in glacial geology and landscape change in terrestrial and marine settings. My research focuses on:

1. Reconstructing the glacial history of NW Europe and the surrounding continental shelf;

2. Measuring and understanding modern rates of glacier change;

3. Refining geochronological surface-dating techniques;

4. Enhanced landscape and seabed mapping;

5. Characterizing glacial sediments, with particular reference to sub-surface fluid storage.

Career history:

Lecturer in Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology

PhD – University of Edinburgh, Geography (2001)

BSc – University of Liverpool, Earth Sciences (1997)

Previously employment:

British Geological Survey (NERC) – Senior Scientist (2001-2014)

Active research projects:
