PRI Cites CCI Researchers in Article on Climate Change Effects in Greenland

PRI’s “The World” mentioned two University of Maine researchers in the article, “Here’s what climate change looks like from the edge of the Greenland icecap.” According to the article, Greenland is melting fast, which is bad news for sea level rise and other effects of climate change. Glaciologist Gordon Hamilton, an associate professor in the Climate Change Institute and School of Earth and Climate Sciences, is leading a research team in Greenland. His team is using laser-mapping to image the calving of Helheim Glacier into Sermilik fjord in unprecedented detail, according to the article. The report also included photos of icebergs in Greenland contributed by Ellyn Enderlin, a research assistant professor in CCI and School of Earth and Climate Sciences.
