Many outlet glaciers in Greenland feed ice from the land into fjords, where discharge of icebergs and melting of the glaciers by warmer ocean waters contribute to rising sea levels. David Holland of NYU studies what happens in the fjord when ice meets water. He also studies how the dynamics at the margin between ice and sea are changing, and what those changes could mean in the future for global sea level rise. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
