WN@tL: “Mysteries of Glacier Slip and Landform Development”

January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Free

Speaker: Luke Zoet, Geological Sciences

Speaker Bio: Coming soon!

Description: Glaciers flow downhill like slow motion rivers but unlike a river a glacier “slips” at its base. Glacier slip accounts for most of the motion of fast-moving glaciers and is the root cause for the construction of many of the landforms that glaciers leave behind once they melt. We can study modern-day glaciers as well as landforms left behind to help understand how the slipping process occurs. I will show results from the various project in Canada, Switzerland, and Wisconsin where we have studied glacial landforms to better understand glacial slip.
