Polar Geophysics Group

The Polar Geophysics Group (PGG) is a team of research scientists and engineers from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of The Earth Institute at Columbia University.

PGG is involved in airborne geophysical campaigns in both poles. We use airborne RADAR, LiDAR, Gravimetry, and Magnetometry to explore ice sheet morphology, ice sheet processes, and the geological settings of the polar regions. Research within the group encompasses a broad spectrum of instrument development, fundamental mapping, and process-based discovery. We are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and additional private foundations. We have also collaborated with the New York Air National Guard (NY ANG), as well as several other international partners and programs.
