What is really happening in Greenland, Melt, Sea-level rise and all that
resented by Dr. Neil Frank Humphrey,
University of Wyoming
September 6th (Tuesday), 6 p.m., Via Zoom (online) & Live at
Teton County Library. Open to Public.
The artic is warming and the Greenland is melting. What do we know and why do we care? A common headline in the media is Greenland is melting. The underlying story usually points out that Greenland, which is by far the largest mass of ice in the Northern hemisphere, contains enough water to raise sea-level by 20 feet. Are these media reports all hype, or is Florida really doomed in the next few years? In this talk I will discuss what we know and don’t know about how climate warming is affecting the cryosphere, with a focus on Greenland. In particular, we will look at some of the research that is trying to answer the very difficult problem of predicting the real future of this large ice mass. As an added bonus, we will answer the question: why is Greenland called Greenland?
