The Ice of the Planet as Witness to and Memory of Climate Change

Polar ice sheets and high-altitude glaciers retain memory of past climate change, providing records that extend back almost 1 million years.   At risk of disappearing due to glacial melting, international research is now being conducted to salvage these precious archives.   


Paolo Gabrielli is a research scientist at Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center of The Ohio State University.  His primary interest is the study of ice cores with emphasis on paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic reconstructions.   https://byrd.osu.edu/people/gabrielli.1
