Lassonde’s William Colgan’s study cited in Eos magazine
Professor William Colgan‘s study, predicting the loss of ice from Greenland was cited in Eos Magazine.
Prof. Colgan started at Lassonde this September and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering.
In his recent study, Colgan et al. Professor Colgan uses a mathematical model to predict how much ice will be lost from Greenland over the next 500 years and the amount of sea level rise expected as a result due to a mechanism called “thermal-viscous collapse.”
The study proposes that Greenland Glaciers will gradually weaken due to sea level rise and warming.
