Welcome to the Cryosphere Lab

As part of the Earth System Science programme at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), our research group studies the cryosphere, namely the earth’s surface where water is frozen.

We use a wide range of methods, including geophysics, geodesy, remote sensing, and deep learning. We adopt new tools, develop new algorithms, make new observations to quantify the dynamics of the cryospheric systems (see our current research on the Greenland Ice Sheet and glaciers and frozen ground).

We are looking for new PhD students (see Openings) !
