Video of the week - Polar Grid


The ice shelves in West Antarctica are disintegrating, and glaciers in southern Greenland are moving faster. These great ice sheets affect the global climate in complex ways. The impact of their retreat on sea levels would be profound.

In September 2007, iSGTW reported on Polar Grid (PolarGrid: entering the ice age), a "project to advance cyberinfrastructure, empower minority and smaller universities, and provide scientists with a gateway to teraflops of power: enough to drive new and improved high-performance simulations and enable measurement and prediction of ice sheet response to climate change and effect on ocean levels."
