Dr. Vena Chu is Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, UC Santa Barbara. Her research interests are Arctic climate change and impacts on hydrology, particularly for the Greenland ice sheet. Currently, her work deals with understanding the spatial and temporal dynamics of the Greenland ice sheet hydrologic system from snow to sea using geospatial technologies and field techniques. Her research has focused on meltwater input into the ice sheet through supraglacial rivers and moulins, as well as meltwater export into the ocean through proglacial rivers and fjord sediment plumes.
