My name is Matt Chernos and I am a Hydrologist and Data Analyst. I started this blog when I was a Master of Science student in the Geography Department at the University of British Columbia. I was trying to understand how the presence of a lake at a glacier terminus affects the melt rate at Bridge Glacier, in the Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia. Now I spend a lot of time modelling mountain hydrology for industry, government, and not-for-profit stakeholders. I like mountains, glaciers, travelling to cool places to see more mountains and glaciers, and cool (open-source!) data analysis.

My website has a couple pages:

  • Bridging the Gap is my blog, focused on important hydrology/glaciology papers and general science-ing.
  • If you want to read about what research I’ve been up to, click here.
  • If you want to learn more about me, you can read my CV.

Through this blog I hope that I can help some of the most exciting glacier-related scientific discoveries reach a broader audience. I also hope I can convince you that science is really cool.

  1. Super nice blog Matt, I love how easy it is to navigate! Thanks again for the help! Also, I didn’t know about your research until checking your blog out, it’s super interesting 🙂 Good luck with the Masters!
