Inga Smith specialises in sea ice and energy research, particularly the influence of freshwater on Antarctic sea ice formation in a warming climate. She is based in the University of Otago’s Department of Physics. Inga’s research interests include supercooling measurement instrumentation, platelet ice formation, climate modelling of ice-ocean interactions, international transport emissions, and building physics. Inga is the co-chair of the CLIVAR/CliC/SCAR Southern Ocean Region Panel, an international research coordination panel. She is PI on sea ice and climate change related projects funded by the Marsden Fund and Deep South National Science Challenge. More about Inga.
