Mr N. Toberg


Nick Toberg is interested in the effects of global feedback processes that determine
the environment of the Arctic Ocean. Large swaths of the Arctic Ocean have
yet to be investigated in a thorough, systematic fashion; functions of the
cost and difficulty of working in this area coupled with the time consuming
task of processing data when an expedition has concluded. I am developing
tools and methodology to better understand how sea ice becomes distributed
in both area and thickness. This work adds to a global database of sea ice
data to help climate change scientists calibrate their predictions.
