Greenland and Antarctica may seem distant, but in fact they are as close as the Jersey Shore (not the town, the actual shore!). What happens to the ice sheets at the Poles affects the global sea level; and what we do in our homes affects the health of the ice sheets. Anandakrishnan will discuss the state of the research, show some pictures, and answer questions.
Sridhar Anandakrishnan received his Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Wisconsin and his B.S. and M.S. from Columbia University. He has worked in both industry and government before settling down at Penn State. He has traveled and worked in many of the ice-covered parts of the world, including Antarctica and Greenland.
