Simon’s research focuses on the interactions between climate, glaciers and landscape on short to long timescales. This work is directed towards reconciling the climatic and glaciological modelling of ice-mass behaviour with the geomorphological and sedimentary evidence of recent and Quaternary glaciation. Simon is also interested in the relevance of Geography, seeing the subject as the key link between ‘hard’ science and the wider world. In particular, Simon is working on the ways in which the Internet and global mass-media are used to communicate the science and implications of climate change. Simon is an active member of the Centre for Micromorphology, and is developing new methods and approaches to the study of microscopic characteristics of sediments in a variety of environmental contexts.
