Duddu awarded NSF CAREER grant to better understand Antarctic ice sheet fracture | Vanderbilt News


An assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering has been awarded a $555,000 NSF CAREER grant to analyze Antarctic ice sheet fracture, improve models for ice mass loss and reduce uncertainty in long-term projections of average sea level rise.

“There is concern that rapid changes to floating ice shelves can destabilize parts of the Antarctic ice sheet and accelerate its contribution to global sea level rise,” said Ravindra Duddu.
