Matthias Huss is a postdoc at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and has recently finished his PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The focus of his thesis was on glacier mass loss in the Swiss Alps over the last century and on models for calculating impacts of future glacier retreat. He compiled a comprehensive field data base of glacier changes, analyzed them with mass balance models and explained long-term glacier variations with large-scale climatic forcings.
