Icelandic Glaciers
Glacial events, like the 1996 volcanic eruption under Iceland's ice cap, offer scientists a rare opportunity to understand how glaciers work, how climate change may alter their behavior, and how to prepare for future events. Joining Drs. Andy Russell, Fiona Tweed, and their colleagues as they document evidence of past glacial floods in the vast glaciated landscapes surrounding Iceland's ice caps is Alina-Maria Crasnianec (Caransebes, Romania). July 21-28
