Antarctic sea ice

March 26th, 2008

Watch the NewsHour tonight to hear Professor Stephen Schneider discuss what the loss of Antarctic sea ice may indicate about Earth’s warming. From NewsHour:

A major chunk of ice has fallen off the Antarctic peninsula, threatening the Wilkins ice shelf behind it. Scientists say the collapse shows how quickly changes can occur at the poles when a critical point is reached.

Listen to the report to hear Professor Schneider’s interview and for more information, come to the library and see our display dedicated to the research and history of the International Polar Year.
