In the lead up to Canada’s biggest gathering of Arctic specialists DGES faculty member Derek Mueller’s research was profiled in the press.
Mueller’s research focusses on massive icebergs, termed ice islands, that are now adrift in the Arctic Ocean. As the climate warms, these ice hazards have been breaking off of ice shelves and floating glacier tongues and could potentially become an issue for navigation in Arctic waters.
Mueller and his colleagues presented on this research at the ArticNet annual science meetings, held in December in Vancouver.
