From the Ilulissat Ice Fjord in Greenland, to the Pine Island Ice Shelf In Antarctica, New York University’s David Holland invites us along on a journey from the extreme North to the extreme South. An expert in polar environmental science, Professor Holland discusses two of his recent field trips to investigate the possibilities of future global sea level change from melting ice sheets. Rolling icebergs, hidden crevasses, unstoppable mosquitoes, plane crashes, sun burn, frost bite, and snow blindness – it’s all part of the quest to understand sea level change!
