Understanding how ice sheets are evolving

04-30-2019


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA describes the work of glaciologists, who study the evolution of ice in polar regions.

The flow of ice among glaciers varies over time and significantly affects the surrounding Earth systems, including the communities that are impacted by rising sea levels.

Scientists are working to determine the fate of the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, in particular, to prepare for potential changes in the coming years.
