Dr. Jeremy Bassis, assistant professor of atmospheric, oceanic & space sciences at the Univeristy of Michigan, joined Dick recently to discuss icebergs. Bassis is lead author of a paper on a new model of iceberg calving & formation that shows that stretches of ice on the coasts of Greenland & Antarctica are in danger of rapidly breaking apart and falling into the sea. Learn more about how this model works, and what the effect might be on global sea levels.
