COP-26 Video of the Week: “Greenland’s Tipping Point” with Twila Moon and Jason Box

Greenland’s ice is 3 kilometers thick, and runs entirely to its bedrock base, the center of which is below sea level. What is the tipping point of Greenland, where the altitude of the ice sheet is so lowered by surface melt that near-complete loss is unavoidable? This session offers an explanation of this important and complex ice sheet. Main Presenters include Dr. Twila Moon, Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), University of Colorado Boulder; and Dr. Jason Box, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
