John-Morgan Manos

Undergraduate Student

I am a fourth-year undergraduate student majoring in Atmospheric Sciences as well as minoring in both Geography and Geographic Information Systems. Within the Glacier Environmental Change group, I focus my research on alpine glaciers in the mid latitudes; specifically, those originating from Great Basin National Park. By surveying the glaciers and utilizing aerial imagery, we can reconstruct the glacier in a 3-dimensional model which we can use to track glacier surface elevation changes in 1 year intervals. Alpine glaciers are known to provide a proxy for local and global climate changes; thus, this model should provide some insight as to the rate and magnitude of such changes within the Great Basin region.
