Jean-Louis Tison

Jean-Louis Tison is a professor at the ULB. His activities are focused on the study of physico-chemical properties of  interface ice , be it the  ice-bedrock  (continental basal ice) ,  ice-ocean  (marine ice) or  ice-atmosphere  (sea ice) interface. His work is based on numerous field expeditions and laboratory experiments, and on the development of equipments and analytical techniques dedicated to the multi-parametric study of ice: textures and fabrics, stable isotopes of oxygen and hydrogen, total gas content and gas composition, bulk salinity, major elements chemistry…The main objective of his research is to better understand initial and boundary conditions of large ice masses (continental or marine), together with a comprehensive approach of the processes governing their interactions with the climate. He is the Belgian representative in the SCAR-ASPeCt (Antarctica Sea Ice Physical Processes and the Climate) project, the FNRS representative within the European Polar Board and Europolar Consortium and the “Basal ice properties “ workpackage leader of the NEEM Project.
