Peter Washam

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist in the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  My research is a hybrid between Physical Oceanography and Glaciology, focused on interactions between the ocean and the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets.  This centers on the oceanic (and atmospheric) processes that drive melt at the Ice Sheet margins, and the fate of the resultant meltwater.

I am currently working with Dr. Britney Schmidt’s group with the AUV/ROV Icefin.  For information regarding the awesome fieldwork that we are currently conducting check out the instagram and twitter profiles.
