Dr. Brice Van Liefferinge, with a background in geography at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), and a PhD looking at the thermal regime of the Antarctic Ice Sheet (Beyond Epica Oldest Ice EU project), is now working on the Oldest Ice Dome Fuji project with Dr. Kenny Matsuoka at the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI, Tromsø, Norway). He is studying the surface mass balance as well as the basal thermal properties of the Dome Fuji region in Antarctica, for which he undertook 3 months of fieldwork at the prospective drilling area (New Dome Fuji).
