My name is Matt Chernos and I am a Hydrologist and Data Analyst. I am a former Master of Science student in the Geography Department at the University of British Columbia. I started this blog while I was trying to understand how the presence of a lake at a glacier terminus affects the melt rate at Bridge Glacier, 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 aimed at trying to put some of the ‘important’ scientific papers in glaciology in plain anglais and proper context.
- 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.
