COP-26 Cryosphere Pavilion Video of the Week: The Important Role of Ice Shelves with Twila Moon, NSIDC; and Susheel Adusumilli and Natalia Erazo, Scripps

Over the coming weeks, the Cryosphere Capsules will feature videos of some of the best and most impactful side events that took place at the Cryosphere Pavilion during COP-26 in Glasgow. This week, especially in response to the research on potential collapse of an important Thwaites ice shelf (above) is an excellent explanation of why these ice shelves are so important, and how they might be lost without far more urgent emissions reductions; featuring Dr. Twila Moon of the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, and Dr. Susheel Adusumilli and PhD student Natalia Erazo, from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.
