Ice Sheets and Sea Level Rise ~ Thursday, April 7th @ 3 PM

Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford, California


DESCRIPTION ~ Sea level rise is one of the most tangible impacts of a changing climate. However, the large uncertainties in projections of future sea level make assessment and management of those impacts particularly difficult. The greatest source of uncertainty in sea level projects is the contribution of continental ice sheets. In this webinar, the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment brings together experts on the theory, modeling, and observation of ice sheets to discuss the progress, prospects, and path forward in reducing those uncertainties in the context of climate assessment, adaptation, and policy.
