Henry Patton


Researcher, iC3

Job description

Henry Patton is a Researcher in the Department of Geosciences at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and is the Assistant Lead of Research Unit 1 - Sub-ice carbon stores - within iC3 (Centre for ice, Cryosphere, Carbon and Climate)

Prior to joining iC3 Henry was part of the Norwegian Centre of Excellence, CAGE (Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate), where he developed empirically constrained numerical models to gain insight into the evolution and environmental legacy of palaeo ice sheets across Eurasia, particularly with regards to landscape evolution and ice-carbon interactions.

Henry holds a PhD degree in Glaciology from Aberystwyth University (UK), which was co-funded by the British Geological Survey. Following graduation he worked at the University of Sheffield (UK) examining the long-term evolution of glacial overdeepenings beneath the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.

Henry is also the Communications Officer for the Nordic Union for Quaternary Research (NORDQUA): https://nordqua.org

    Research interests

     During >10 years research experience across polar regions, Henry has participated in and led numerous marine- and terrestrial-based field campaigns collecting geophysical data from across the Arctic.

    With specialist expertise in numerical modelling, geomatics, and glacial geology/geomorphology, a core motivation of his research is to expand our understanding of how glacial systems develop and impact their environment.

    An example of the modelling outputs Henry has been generating at UiT is this interactive version of the last Eurasian ice sheet: https://icemap.rhewlif.xyz
