Glaciers in a Warming World: Examples from Today and Iowa's Glacial Past

November 5, 2023, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (US Central)

Brunnier Art Museum, Scheman Building

Join University Museums for a lecture by Dr. Neal Iverson, Professor, Geological and Atmospheric Sciences. Glaciers and ice sheets, whether today at high latitudes and altitudes or at the end of the last ice age in Iowa, respond to climate warming in ways that are both predictable and surprising. Their shrinkage over the next century will affect hundreds of millions of people who live near sea level or depend on glacially fed rivers for water, while diminishing the sense of wildness that glacier ice brings to Earth’s most spectacular landscapes.   


There is no registration for this program.
