The primary interest of our research lab is the study of the interactions between ice, climate, and ecosystems. In particular, we focus on the study of Arctic snow and sea ice using a mixture of surface, airborne, and satellite remote sensing (imaging radar, optical, lidar), geophysical techniques, field surveys, and metocean instruments.

Our team currently has only four members located at the ICElab on the University of Victoria campus. We are currently a small but focused group while lab director Randy Scharien is away on research leave (until July 2021). The team collaborates closely with partners and collaborators on NSERC, MEOPAR, Canada Foundation for Innovation, and Polar Knowledge Canada funded research projects. Please see the opportunities page to join our team.
