Dr. Alex S. Gardner is a Research Scientist in the Sea Level And Ice Group, in the Earth Sciences Section. He studies the Earth's cryosphere (frozen Earth) with a particular focus on glaciers and ice sheets and their impacts on sea level rise and water resources. He is interested in how glaciers respond to natural and human induced forcing as well as how changes in their energy balance modify the Earth's climate. Alex is a member of NASA's ICESat-2 Science Definition Team and NASA Sea Level Change Team.
