Join Colorado photographer John Fielder for a multi-media presentation featuring all 66 million acres of Colorado scenery. Travel from the Great Plains, to the foothills of the Rockies, to the highest peaks along the Continental Divide, then descend into our western slope river canyons. Details coming soon.
Measuring snowfall anywhere is a challenge — but perhaps nowhere more so than Antarctica. Scott Landolt is testing new technologies that might finally make accurate snowfall measurements in Antarctica possible.
Mass loss from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets is accelerating, and ice sheets are expected to be the dominant contributor to global sea level rise in the next several decades. William Lipscomb will discuss ice sheet modeling and the likelihood of abrupt sea level rise.
Find out what’s going on inside high-impact and severe storms! NCAR Scientist Wen-Chau Lee will discuss how weather radars are used to peer into into these dangerous storms.
