Discovery to Action: Change from the Poles to Our Shores, a lecture featuring Robin E. Bell
The brilliant blue water atop the ice sheets is emblematic of rapid change at the ends of our earth. This development at the poles is now appearing along coastal communities around the globe. The melting ice sheets remain a frontier full of rich discovery: rivers, waterfalls, and water that runs uphill. As these discoveries feed our ice sheet models, they also motivate scientist Robin E. Bell’s work to address how we can keep our planet both habitable and beautiful. Bell is Palisades Geophysical Institute/Lamont Research Professor at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University.
