Glacier

The haunting reality of how quickly climate change is negatively impacting earth is only growing more alarming. Greenland and Antarctic researcher, David Holland, Professor of Mathematics, Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU; Affiliated Faculty and Principal Investigator, Center for Sea Level Change, saw firsthand with his wife, Denise Holland, Field Logistics, Outreach, and Media Officer for David’s research team, how detrimental and vast these impacts are. While in Greenland in July 2018, the Holland’s witnessed a glacier, about half the size of New York’s Manhattan Island, break off. Rising sea levels across the globe are a result of temperature increases causing the world’s glaciers to melt at a rate much faster than it takes for ice sheets to grow.   

NYU DC Dialogues hosted an evening discussion with David and Denise Holland, who shared their research and expertise on the consequences of climate change at the world’s edge. NYU DC lecturer and Science Writer for The Associated Press, Seth Borenstein, moderated the discussion.
