Static Preview

Published on Mar 22, 2017

On March 7, 2017, Arctic sea ice reached its annual wintertime maximum extent, according to scientists at the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and NASA. The Arctic sea ice extent set a record low after a warm winter. Combining the Arctic and Antarctic numbers shows that the planet’s global sea ice levels on Feb. 13 were at their lowest point since satellites began to continuously measure sea ice in 1979.

Melting Greenland Ice Sheets with Gordon Hamilton
Static Preview

Speed of glaciers march to the sea is tripling!

On the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier -- one of Greenland's largest ice fields -- scientists measure the movement of the ice sheet as it transports frozen water to the ocean. They discover that the speed of the glacier's march to the sea has tripled in just ten years. Alarm bells sound because at the current melt rate, within a few decades rising seas will have a profound effect on the low-lying countries of the world. January 20, 2012 uploaded. Gordon Hamilton is a glaciologist working on ice sheet dynamics, and the role ice sheets play in modulating global sea levels.
