ArcticNet - About us

Derek Mueller
Assistant Professor
Carleton University

My research focuses on coastal cryospheric features as well as ice-dependent ecosystems. I studied polar glacial ecosystems as a graduate student in Antarctica and the High Arctic. Then as a postdoctoral fellow, I used radar and optical remote sensing to study lake ice cover, ice shelves and ice islands. My current interests include developing remote sensing techniques for change detection of ?extreme? ice features along the northern coast of Canada. I am examining the relationship between changes in the cryosphere and climate and place my geophysical research in a broad ecological context.
