  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Sophie Nowicki is a Research Scientist in the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD. Her research interests focus on the studies of ice sheet dynamics, and their connections to the global climate and future sea-levels. Through applied mathematics, remote sensing observations and numerical modeling, her work spans the spectrum of local processes, such as understanding the physics of grounding lines, or the impact of our poor knowledge of bedrock topography on ice dynamics, to that of large scale continental ice sheet models.

    Since joining NASA Goddard in August 2009, Sophie was a science team member for Operation IceBridge, and co-lead the SeaRISE (Sea-Level Response to Ice Sheet Evolution), an international effort that investigated the sensitivity of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets to external environmental forcings. Sophie currently leads an effort to couple an ice sheet model to the two Goddard climate models (GEOS-5 and ModelE), and an effort that investigates the feedbacks, processes and impacts of contemporary changes in the Arctic using satellite observations, ice sheet and climate models. She is a member of the NASA Sea Level Change Team (N-SLCT), and co-lead the Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project for CMIP6 (ISMIP6).
