How to Weigh An Ice Sheet? (registration required)

Global sea level is rising at 3 millimeters per year. Melting ice sheets and glaciers contribute more than half of that. But how do we know they are shrinking? And how do we know how fast they shrink? Dazzling and groundbreaking physical engineering allows us to assess global ice loss using satellites in great detail and with great precision. Come and discover how applied physics revolutionized our knowledge of the Earth’s big ice sheets.
