Francisco José Navarro
PhD in Physical Sciences (Geophysics) and Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), where he leads the Research Group on Numerical Simulation in Science and Engineering. His research focuses on glaciology, especially on the mass balance of glaciers, georadar applications in glaciology, numerical modelling of glacier dynamics, and rremote sensing of glaciers. He is currently the president of the International Glaciological Society.

Thermal expansion of the ocean and mass loss from glaciers and ice sheets will continue to be the main contributors to the sea level rise.
