About Richard B. Alley's Work

Richard Alley and colleagues at Penn State study the great ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica, and mountain glaciers, through glaciological and geophysical means, ice coring, and modeling, to learn the history of climate in the ice layers, whether the ice sheets will fall in the ocean and flood the coasts, and how ice sheets make such beautiful landscapes.
