Glaciologist Jonny Kingslake, an assistant professor at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will lead a family-friendly program, sharing insights and photographs from his research trips to Antarctica.
His research is concerned with obtaining a better understanding of glacial processes to improve predictions of ice-sheet evolution.
He utilizes remote-sensing, mathematical modeling and fieldwork to better understand glacial processes.
In language aimed at younger attendees, he will explain how the study of past and present ice flow in the Antarctic ice sheet is key in predicting sea-level rise.
While this event’s content is geared toward children ages 10-15, all alumni and their families are welcome.
A Q&A session will follow Kingslake’s presentation.
