Oct 2014: Alan has an exciting paper in Nature Geoscience showing that massive icebergs drifted to Miami, Florida, during the last ice age. These icebergs were at least 300m thick and left hundreds of scour marks on the sea floor all the way from Cape Hatteras to Florida Keys. More details can be found here.

May 2014: Alan has been awarded a three year $595,922 grant from the National Science Foundation to study whether extremely thick, 'paleocrystic' sea ice growth in the Arctic might have triggered abrupt, large-scale, climate cooling in the past. This project will support a new PhD graduate student.
