Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology Center Researchers in the News

Researchers at UMBC’s Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology (GEST) Center spoke in multiple stories about efforts to monitor glaciers and predict the sea-level changes that could result as they melt.

In the New York Times, Robert Bindschadler spoke about the decreasing capacity to monitor changes using satellites.

“We are slowly going blind in space,” he said.

Michael Studinger and Christopher Shuman spoke from Punta Arenas, Chile, about the latest efforts to monitor Antarctic ice as part of NASA’s IceBridge project.

“This is important because we really need to understand how ice sheets and glaciers respond to changing climate,” Studinger said in the Baltimore Sun. Other stories appeared in MSNBC and OurAmazingPlanet.
