My name is Dr. Ruth Mottram, I am a climate scientist (specialism in glaciology and ice sheet – climate interactions) in Denmark.
You can find out lots more about my research and publications (and where possible pdfs to download) on my Google scholar page aswell as on Research Gate and the research.dmi.dk pages where I occasionally contribute news items.
I’ve been working at DMI for 14 years where I mostly run high resolution regional climate models in the polar regions and work on ice sheet processes. Much of this work is focused on understanding how quickly the big ice sheets (especially Greenland) will lose their ice and contribute to global sea level rise. Living only around 10 metres above sea level focuses the mind a bit..
Some projects I’m working on right now within these themes..
Also an EU Horizon 2020 project, looking at polar climates with state of the art regional climate models is PolarRES
And finally, I am now EU side coordinator of the Horizon Europe project Ocean:Ice which started in November 2022.
I’m no longer on facebook or instagram, though I still maintain a blipfoto presence as well as uploading albums on flickr where I also sometimes post fieldwork photos.
