Finding new causes for polar ice sheet changes

The Antarctic ice sheet may grow thinner or thicker from natural changes in snowfall that are unrelated to long-term trends, according to a recently released study co-authored by a University of Missouri engineering researcher. Experts are keeping a particularly close eye on changes in polar ice sheet thickness and mass as possible indicators of global […]

Mizzou Engineering professor earns career recognition

Mizzou Engineering Professor Curt Davis is being honored by an international technology organization for his contributions to satellite remote sensing research. Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor and director of the MU Center for Geospatial Intelligence, has been named a “fellow” by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Davis’ new IEEE rank—the […]

Ice sheets becoming a hot topic

Rising sea levels are probably the most serious effect of global warming, and have already displaced portions of the world’s population, an MU College of Engineering professor warned Wednesday. “These effects are not in the future; these effects are happening now,” said Curt Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor whose research focuses on ice […]

Curt Davis wins NASA science team appointment

Drawing upon nearly two decades of polar ice sheet research, CoE Professor Curt Davis will begin serving this month as part of a team managing a NASA satellite dedicated to measuring changes in the thickness of Earth’s ice sheets. Davis, an electrical and computer engineering faculty member, is one of eight scientists selected by NASA […]
