Ice Sheets and CReSIS

Most of the freshwater on earth isn’t held in rivers, lakes or streams.  It’s in massive ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland.  Those ice sheets hold a valuable record about the past climate of earth, but now they are melting at an increasing rate.  Professor Prasad Gogineni of Kansas University and director of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) joins us to discuss how scientists are studying this phenomenon.
