Tools We Develop

Much of the field instrumentation we deploy and numerical tools we use are constructed/developed in-house.

Models and Software

model mesh

Documentaion and support for UM-developed ice sheet modeling tools


Instrumentation development begins with testing circuitry design in the lab.

Bench testing.

Once tested, instrumentation is built in our lab.

Soldering under the fume hood.

Instrumentation moves from the confines of the lab to field deployment.

Custom built probe for measuring water pressure, temperature, and dye concentration at the bottom of 800m deep borehole.

Final troubleshooting and data collection happens in the field.
