Eric Larour

Research Scientist in the Sea Level and Ice Group - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory


Eric is the project lead for the Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM), a state-of-the art-ice flow modeling software developed at JPL in collaboration with University of California Irvine. Its main goal is to model the evolution of the mass balance of polar ice caps (Antarctica and Greenland) projected into the near future (10-100 years), and to understand its contribution to local sea-level rise around the world.  Eric  received his M.Sc and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris. He went on to be a Software Engineer in the Mechanical Division at JPL, and for the past 12 years, a Scientist in the Sea-Level and Ice Group of the Science Division. His research interests include data assimilation of remote sensing observations into projections of ice sheet mass balance and sea level rise; forward modeling of polar ice caps using large-scale, high-resolution, multi-physics, multi-model based finite element ice flow models; and development of high-performance parallelized computer architectures for modeling Cryosphere and Sea-Level processes.
