SEEC Briefing Monday: Climate Change and the Poles

The collapse of the Larson C Ice Shelf, deteriorating infrastructure of the McMurdo Antarctic Research Station, and the opening of Northwest Passage shipping channels, is focusing attention on climate change in the polar regions. Just this week the latest
