Video of the Week: “Understanding Ice Sheet Stability and its Ocean Circulation and Sea-level Rise Impacts” with Benjamin Keisling, Hannah Baranes and Cecilia Morales

Dr. Benjamin Keisling co-authored the above Greenland paper and volunteered as an Early Career Scientist (ECS) at the 2019 COP25 Cryosphere Pavilion, where he helped share the latest cryosphere science with policy makers. This side event includes Dr. Keisling, now at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics; and fellow COP25 ECS volunteers Cecilia Morales Ocaña, PhD candidate at the Andalusian Earth Sciences Institute (CSIC-UGR); and Dr. Hannah Baranes, now at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Their presentations explain how modeling ice sheets in the past informs us about Earth’s response to future warming, the influence of atmospheric CO2 levels on global ocean circulation and stability, and the local-scale impacts of rising sea levels on coastal and low-lying communities around the world.

The ECS application portal for the Cryosphere Pavilion at COP28 in Dubai opens soon; look for a special Cryosphere Capsule outlining this opportunity in coming days.
