Dr. Lenneke Jong

Research Scientist, Co-Project Lead (AAPP: Theme 1: Project 3 Ice core)
University of Tasmania


Lenneke’s research uses climate records from glacial ice cores drilled across East Antarctica and numerical methods to improve our understanding of the variability of snow accumulation across Antarctica and how this relates to the other climate data recorded within the cores. Improving our understanding of spatial and temporal variability of snow-accumulation records from in the interior of Antarctica will help to inform our analysis and interpretation of data from the “million year ice core” which will be drilled over the next years at Little Dome C, to answer questions about Antarctic mass balance and ice-sheet stability.
