Title: "Time-domain glacial isostatic adjustment: theory, computation, and statistical applications"

Abstract: The rocky interior of the earth flows viscoelastically over timescales on the order of 1000 years in response to sustained stresses. Such flow is still occurring today as a result of the growth and collapse over the last ice age of massive ice sheets and is evident in changes of the earth’s surface and gravity. I develop numerical models to explore the physics of this phenomenon, called glacial isostatic adjustment, and use statistical methods from information geometry to constrain the earth’s rheology and the ice sheets’ evolution.
