2016 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science
His main research concerns Antarctic sea ice, Climatology, Ice shelf, Sea ice and Cryosphere. When carried out as part of a general Climatology research project, his work on Antarctic ice sheet is frequently linked to work in Turning point, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His studies examine the connections between Ice shelf and genetics, as well as such issues in Geomorphology, with regards to Drainage basin.
His study in Sea ice thickness, Arctic ice pack and Drift ice is carried out as part of his studies in Sea ice. Drift ice is a subfield of Oceanography that he studies. His work deals with themes such as Snow, Atmospheric sciences, Atmospheric temperature and Ice sheet, which intersect with Cryosphere.
Ian Allison focuses on Oceanography, Climatology, Sea ice, Antarctic sea ice and Ice shelf. His work on Physical oceanography, Climate state, Climate oscillation and Lead as part of general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Glaciology, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His studies deal with areas such as Snow, Glacier, Effects of global warming and Atmospheric sciences as well as Climatology.
His Sea ice study is mostly concerned with Cryosphere, Sea ice thickness, Ice stream and Ice divide. His study on Antarctic sea ice is covered under Arctic ice pack. His research integrates issues of Iceberg and Geomorphology in his study of Ice shelf.
Oceanography, Ice sheet, Sea ice, Antarctic sea ice and Climatology are his primary areas of study. His biological study focuses on Ice shelf. His work carried out in the field of Ice sheet brings together such families of science as Snow, Physical geography, Ice core and Antarctic ice sheet.
Ian Allison is involved in the study of Sea ice that focuses on Cryosphere in particular. His Antarctic sea ice research integrates issues from Ice stream and Drift ice. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Sea level rise, Atmospheric sciences and China.
His primary areas of investigation include Antarctic sea ice, Oceanography, Ice sheet, Sea ice and Ice shelf. His Antarctic sea ice research is included under the broader classification of Cryosphere. His study in Ice sheet is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical geography and Environmental resource management.
His Ice shelf research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Arctic ice pack, Sea ice thickness, Iceberg and Ice stream. His Sea ice thickness research is under the purview of Climatology. Ian Allison interconnects Antarctic ice sheet and Geomorphology in the investigation of issues within Melt pond.
