Graduate Student / Postdoc Seminar
Ocean-Ice Interactions in Antarctica and Greenland
Speaker: Alon Stern
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302
Date: Friday, May 4, 2012, 1 p.m.
This talk will give a basic introduction to ocean-ice interactions, which is a major research topic for those concerned with predicting sea level rise. The talk will review the mechanisms involved in studying this problem, and will present some experimental (laboratory), model and observational results from David Holland's students working on the 9th floor. Some photos and scientific findings from the recent field season to the McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica, will be shown.
