The ERC AdG encourage substantial advances at the frontier of knowledge by supporting excellent, leading advanced investigators to pursue ground breaking, high-risk/high gain research. The AdG targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right.
Finite Element Exterior Calculus Applications
The ambition of this project is to set the scene for a number of new research directions based on FEEC by giving ground-breaking contributions to its foundation. The aim is also to use FEEC as a tool, or a guideline, to extend the foundation of numerical PDE to a variety of problems for which this foundation does not exist.

Global Glacier Mass Continuity (ICEMASS)
The ICEMASS project will derive and analyse glacier thickness changes using satellite laser and radar altimetry, and satellite-derived and other digital elevation models, and convert these to a global glacier mass budget. The analysis of these data will enable several major steps forward in glacier and Earth science.
