Melting Down Glaciers from Mountains to Poles: What does it mean for us?

Date: 
Thursday, October 5, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: 

Avogaro's Number, 605 S. Mason

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) brings to CSU and the community a panel discussion on how the melting of glaciers and polar ice caps is contributing to global sea level rise. As the ice drains into the sea, what will we protect and what will be lost forever? The panel will be a discussion on how drivers, such as oceanic thermal expansion, post glacial rebound, and land hydrology determine how fast and how high sea-level will rise.

  • Dan McGrath, Geoscience
  • Andrew Bliss, Anthropology
  • Shane Kanatous, Biology
  • Julia Klein, Ecosystems Science and Sustainability

The discussion will be moderated by Dale Lockwood, Academic Coordinator.
