For this marine tech, Antarctica’s Thwaites Glacier drives home threat of climate change

4 CQ

Joee Patterson was one of four marine technicians on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel during an expedition to Thwaites Glacier this past winter. The glacier is melting fast, and scientists fear that if it were to collapse entirely, it would trigger up to 11 feet of sea level rise. Produced by: Carolyn Beeler.
