Research Interests
Brenda Hall is a glacial geologist/geochronologist with interests in paleoclimate and the stability of ice sheets. Her work involves geomorphological mapping, chronology (radiocarbon, exposure-age, U-series), and development of paleoclimatological archives from lake sediments. She also has studied past distributions of Antarctic seals. Her work addresses questions, such as the behavior of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and the origin of ice ages.
