Episode 88

The Greenland ice sheet has become a hotbed of climate change research in recent decades. The alarming rate of warming being observed has garnered attention from scientists across the globe, including today’s guest, Dr. Tom Mote. He has ventured to the ice sheet himself to observe and measure the rapidly changing landscape, but his work also uses remote sensing to measure the changing continent. Today we’ll discuss the science behind this incredible melting and how these changes are altering global sea-levels, water currents, and even weather patterns.
