Running Time:
00:36:37
Join us for this special Webcast from Summit Camp, which sits atop nearly 2 miles (about 3200 m) of ice on the Greenland ice cap. We'll talk with Zoe Courville, an Ice Stories blogger and snow researcher from the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, about life on top of an ice sheet. She'll also discuss her research into how snow becomes glaciers.

Ice Stories:  Snow Chemistry (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:22:08
As the Arctic continues to warm, chemicals locked in the snow can be released-either into the seas or evaporated into the air. Dr. Glenn Rowland studies the chemicals locked in the ice to help us understand what is there now and how it will react when released into the environment.
