Brief Bio

Tyler Sutterley is a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow focusing on changes in Earth's glaciers and ice sheets. He joined the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory at Goddard Space Flight Center in April 2017. During his fellowship at Goddard, he's using laser altimetry observations from Operation IceBridge, ICESat-1 and the upcoming ICESat-2 mission to investigate elevation changes in the Antarctic Peninsula and in West Antarctica, which are presently the largest contributors to sea level rise from the Antarctic continent.

Tyler comes from the Earth System Science Department at the University of California, Irvine. There, he used a combination of remote sensing observations from NASA's GRACE, ICESat and Operation IceBridge missions and climate model outputs to study modern-day changes of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.
