Research Interests
Duncan Young is a Polar and Planetary Geophysicist who works primarily in radioglaciology (i. e. using ice penetrating radar) and other geophysical methods to address problems in polar science, including geothermal heat flow and the preservation of old ice (including in support of Europe's Beyond Epica, Asutralia's Million Year Ice Core and the US COLDEX Center). Duncan is also a member of the Europa Clipper Project Science Team as a Co-I on the REASON radar investigation, which will map out the ice shell of Jupiter's moon Europa in the 2030s.
