About the Author
Jonathan Carrivick is a Senior Lecturer in Geomorphology in the School of Geography, University of Leeds, UK. His primary research interests lie within polar, arctic and alpine ice-marginal systems, and especially focus on glacier outburst floods and proglacial lakes. He specialises in digital topographic surveying, especially for construction of terrain models for input to morphodynamic computer simulations, and for detecting rapid geomorphological changes and geomorphological coupling in glaciers, alpine hillslopes, moraines and gravel bed and bedrock rivers.
Dr Mark Smith is a Lecturer in Water Research in the School of Geography, University of Leeds, UK. His research focuses on the interactions of rough surfaces with air and water flows and methods of quantifying that roughness, with particular application to fluvial hydraulics, sediment transport and surface energy balances. He is a specialist in high resolution survey methods having worked with Terrestrial Laser Scanners for over a decade and more recently using Structure-from-Motion datasets in a range of environments, from gravel bed rivers, to eroding badlands to melting glacier ice.
Dr Duncan Quincey is an Associate Professor in Geomorphology in the School of Geography, University of Leeds, UK. His research focuses on the evolution of glacial and alpine environments, with particular interests in the processes controlling lake development and outburst flooding. He is a remote sensing specialist with skills in developing optical- and SAR-based methods for retrieving surface velocity data from satellite imagery and in employing novel remote sensing methods, such as Structure-from-Motion, to data model geophysical processes.
