Brent Goehring is an assistant professor and the Arnold Early Career Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Tulane University. He studies ice sheet and glacier reconstruction, age chronologies in West Antarctica and cosmogenic nuclide systematics.
He is part of a $25 million research collaboration considered one of the most detailed and extensive examinations of a massive Antarctic glacier ever undertaken. The study of the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica is being funded by the National Science Foundation and the UK Natural Environment Research Council. It consists of eight large-scale projects that will bring together leading polar scientists in one of the most inhospitable regions of the planet.
