As the land loses its struggle with the sea, it's time for new tools to learn just how climate change and sea level rise will effect the coastal U.S.
Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9° F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.
Accompanied by a production team from StormCenter Communications, Dr. Heidi Cullen spent some time with an international team of scientists that just wrapped up their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile core of solid ice in Greenland to find out what life is like in this remote place.
Dr. Heidi Cullen, with a production team from StormCenter Communications, met with the pilots of the 109th Airlift Wing to talk about what it's like to fly in extreme weather conditions, and their dangerous job getting people and equipment into Greenland's harsh interior and back.
An international team of climate scientists, working on the NEEM research project, has just completed their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile deep vertical core of solid ice in Greenland, looking for clues about ancient and future climates.
