  • Penn State’s top teaching award
  • Presidential Young Investigator Award
  • Earth - the Operator’s Manual -

Join us as we discuss climate change, glaciers, and sea level.  Much of his current research is on a Western Antarctic glacier called Thwaites Glacier.  It's been dubbed the doomsday glacier because of its likely impact on sea level.  Alley is a gifted speaker and uses  incredible analogies to paint a vivid picture. 

Another big part of the discussion is how Carbon is the thermostat control knob for our atmosphere.  We hope you enjoy the discussion.  We did!
