17th Annual James Arnold Lecture: Sea level commitment from melting ice sheets

01/19/2018 - 4:00pm
UCSD Natural Sciences Building (NSB) Auditorium
Event Description: 

Eric Rignot, professor of Earth System Science at UC Irvine and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will speak on  the principal physical processes that control the evolution of glaciers that control the ice sheet periphery, with a focus on marine instability, sea level rise potential, and ice-ocean interactions, and the challenges that we face in reproducing their evolution in highresolution, atmosphere/sea-ice/ocean/ice coupled numerical models.
