Rebekka Frøystad

“Hello GEO! I am really excited to be joining Andreas Born’s ice modelling group as a PhD student for the next four years.

Recently, I finished a MSc, in Copenhagen, in physics where I did my thesis on atmospheric measurements of air bubbles in ice cores.

My PhD project is on modelling the future of the Folgefonna glacier in western Norway and investigating whether new possibilities for hydropower open up as the glacier melts. The project is an interdisciplinary one and we will also collaborate with the Department of Comparative Politics to assess the political willingness to expand upon hydropower in Norway. ” You will find Rebekka in room no 3124.
