Position in project: Project partner

Dr Spagnolo will co-lead, together with Prof Bakke, the methodological development of the glacier reconstruction component. He will also provide data from Italy and the Balkans.

Research interests related to the project’s scope:

  • Ice sheet/stream dynamics via the study of glacial bedforms (esp. drumlins & MSGL): morphometry, spatial distribution, formation and evolution
  • Quaternary climate changes, via the study of Alpine glaciations: glacial landform mapping, morphometry and distribution, glacier extent reconstruction and moraine dating via cosmogenics
  • The interplay between tectonics, climate and surface processes: glacial buzzsaw, rivers and catchment morphometry
