Jason Box has studied the Greenland ice sheet as part of more than 20 expeditions in Greenland since 1994. Originally from the US, he is now a research professor with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). Prior to Denmark, he gained a broad perspective in climate and water issues from university lecturing for 9 years while studying the Arctic. His work examines the interactions between elements of the ice atmosphere ocean system using a combination of remote sensing, atmospheric modeling, and in-situ ground truth measurements.
He is contributing author to the past three Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, a leading member of the Arctic Council’s Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) and a former Chair of the Cryosphere Focus Group of the American Geophysical Union.
