Storms of intensities seen today, combined with a few meters increase in sea level, were enough to transport massive coastal boulders more than 100,000 years ago.
The better climate models become, the harder it is to use them. A team of Columbia scientists and their colleagues are working to fix that.
Research by geophysicist Christine McCarthy reveals how glaciers move, what makes them speed up, and how they are contributing to sea level rise as the climate warms.
Self-pity is a luxury we can’t afford right now. We need science to inform our actions in a fast-changing world, and we need to keep asking questions.
