2011-04-28 by

Shad O’Neel studies Alaska’s volatile calving glaciers. In this short preview to his plenary session for the Classrooms for Climate conference at UAA May 4-7, O’Neel discusses the dramatic and fast-changing landscape of Alaska’s mountain glaciers, contrasts the dramatically differing behavior of Columbia and Harvard glaciers in Prince William Sound, and ponders whether Anchorage will need to search for a new water source as Eklutna glacier diminishes.

O’Neel’s talk at Classrooms for Climate is May 5, 11 a.m. in Cuddy Hall. This interview was recorded April 26, 2011.
