Event Description:
The Greenland Ice Sheet contains enough water to raise sea level by more than 7 meters. Estimations of the rate of ice loss from Greenland under warming climate are vital for predicting rates of future sea level rise. University of Arkansas professor Matt Covington, with support from the National Science Foundation, has spent the last two summers conducting field work on the Greenland Ice Sheet trying to understand how the sliding motion of the ice is impacted by meltwater that flows into giant holes in the ice called moulins. Each summer, the team was helicoptered out to establish a remote camp on the ice sheet, where they had to work self-sufficiently in harsh conditions over a period of several weeks. Matt will discuss the scientific research that his team was conducting and share stories, photos, and videos from their adventures working on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
