Meet glaciologist Slawek Tulaczyk and his team, who work in the fast-emerging field of ice sheet dynamics. No longer thought of as giant slabs of slow-moving frozen water, ice sheets are energized by a complex system of subglacial lakes, floods, streams, and ice quakes. Here the group has just returned from a month at a remote camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and they have lots to tell us about their icy adventures.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
