A new book paints a daunting and detailed picture of earth’s natural ice under threat, and explains why what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.
A small team of scientists ventures out onto the Greenland ice sheet to study the forces large and small that are accelerating the melting of the world’s second-largest ice mass.
As climate warms, the Greenland ice sheet is melting, helping to fuel global sea-level rise. Follow a small team of scientists as they hike onto the sheet to investigate the forces large and small that are demolishing the ice.
