Dr Richard Westaway

Biography

I manage the ERC-funded GlobalMass and Deep Purple projects. 

GlobalMass aims to rigorously combine satellite and in-situ data related to different aspects of the sea level budget, so that observed sea level rise can be attributed to its component parts. Visit the project website (www.globalmass.eu) for more details.

Deep Purple will investigate the physical and microbial processes which darken the Greenland Ice Sheet and accelerate sea level rise. Visit the project website www.deeppurple-ercsyg.eu) for more details.

I completed a PhD in the development of remote sensing methods for measurement of large, gravel-bed, braided rivers at Cambridge University in 2001, and have subsequently managed and delivered various environmental projects in the private, public and research sectors.
