Bo Sun

Bo SUN is an Antarctic glaciologist, who specialises in polar cryosphere science and geophysical survey of the Antarctic ice sheet. He has undertaken several field seasons in Antarctica and, on his most recent visits (2004/5, 2007/08 and 2012/13), collected radio-echo sounding data from Dome A region (the highest and most inaccessible region of the Antarctica ice sheet). Study of these radar data, combined with numerical modeling, will allow a much fuller understanding of the glaciological conditions at Dome A, from which the location of an ice core site can be evaluated and deeper understanding of the evolution history of the Antarctic ice sheet.
