Employed By



Dr. Eric Larour is the Section Manager for the Earth Science Section, Science Division, Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His scientific interest lies in Cryosphere processes with a particular focus on the impact of melting ice caps on sea-level rise on decadal to centennial timescales. He is the project manager for the Ice Sheet and Sea-Level System Model (, a modeling software to quantify the evolution of polar ice sheets in a changing climate. His interests include ice sheet dynamics and its interactions with the ocean, solid-Earth and atmosphere, as well as data assimilation, forward modeling, inverse modeling and uncertainty quantification. He is a PI for the NASA Sea-Level Change Science Team and the lead for modeling and integration in the team.
