Jamin Greenbaum


Jamin Greenbaum's zest for researching the changing Arctic and Antarctic environment stems from his drive to take data then re-interpret it for society to recognize the need to plan on being steps ahead.  Jamin leads a post-doctorate assignment at University of Texas’s Institute of Geophysics using remote sensing drones. He received his M.S. in Aerospace Engineering at UT in 2006. He recognizes that by observing grounding line behavior of the major Antarctic ice streams we will be able to estimate the mass loss into the world’s oceans and the eventuality of global sea level change. Since 2007 Greenland and Antarctica have often been home for Jamin as he explores a multitude of aerial, satellite and oceanographic technology to unlock the un-noticed truth of our thawing dynamic planet.
