COP-26 Cryosphere Pavilion Video of the Week: A Tale of Two Ice Sheets

In keeping with the contrasting Greenland and Antarctica studies in this week’s Capsules, this COP-26 session explains the differences between melting and potential sea-level rise rates from Earth’s two major ice sheets of Greenland (7 meters of potential sea-level rise) and Antarctica (about 58 meters, or 190 feet); with Dr. Julie Brigham-Grette of University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Maxence Menthon, a doctoral student at Vrije Universiteit (Free University) Amsterdam.
