Climatologist speaking at KSU Thursday

As a climatologist with a specialty in glaciology and global climate change, Mountain has been part of over 25 international expeditions to study existing glaciers and ice sheets to understand the earth’s climate history.
His research has taken place in Antarctica, Greenland, China, Tibet, Africa and South America with the ultimate goal of understanding past climate variability, where changes have taken place, and the rate of such changes. His research relates to the details of how glaciers and ice sheets interact with the climate system and what the current global retreat of glaciers tells us about climate change and prospects for the earth’s future climate.
