Melting ice, rising seas

Wednesday September 20, 2023 from 12:40 PM to 1:20 PM
Blauwe Zaal, Auditorium

Peter Kuipers Munneke, Dutch TV weatherman and polar researcher

The enormous ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica are melting even faster than most models predict. Polar researcher and NOS weatherman Peter Kuipers Munneke studies how and how quickly the polar ice sheets are responding to warming, and what this means for future global sea-level. Technical innovations in satellite observation and computing power are key to monitoring and understanding the ice sheets. Peter Kuipers Munneke will address the latest developments and insights, including multi-meter sea-level rise and the increase in extreme weather worldwide.
