Snacks at 6:30, lecture at 7:00, West Chester, PA Borough Hall, 401 East Gay Street, Room 240
Dr. Andreas Muenchow, a sea-going Oceanography Associate Professor at the University of Delaware, began his studies in the Delaware estuaries; but soon found himself drawn to some of the most remote glacier-ocean systems on the earth – that is, the far reaches of Northwest Greenland.
Beginning his research with questions as to the cause of melting arctic ice, Dr. Muenchow soon found conclusive evidence that the oceans were steadily warming due to climate change. On May 10th, Dr. Muenchow will take us on his exploration of the Petermann Glacier and Wolstenholme Fjord. Please join us to hear the overwhelming evidence of a melting arctic – and bring your friends that may still be doubtful as to the reality of climate change. Perhaps they, too, will thaw.
