At Austral University, we are small group of young motivated researcher and we are interested in glacier-climate interactions, ice dynamics, glacial hazards, low cost sensor systems and other things. If you have an interesting research idea involving Chilean
(or Southamerican) Glaciers and you think you are able to formulate it with our help, then we would be very happy to host your application here at Austral University (you can find more information about our university/institutes at: www.uach.cl, http://icfm.uach.cl/ and http://ict.uach.cl/).
In the case that you were interested in ice-flow modelling using the SICOPOLIS (www.sicopolis.net) model, Ralf Greve from the Institute of Low Temperature Science is also willing to co-guide your project.
