CU Boulder/CIRES professor and director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center Mark Serreze will give a book talk at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on Monday, Sept. 17.
Serreze, a renowned Arctic geographer and climatologist who has conducted fieldwork on ice caps, glaciers and sea ice, will be discussing his new book Brave New Arctic: The Untold Story of the Melting North.
The book describes how puzzlement turned to astonishment as researchers came to understand the Arctic of old was quickly disappearing. Serreze’s gripping scientific adventure story blends invaluable insights from his own career with those of other pioneering scientists who ushered in an exciting new age of Arctic exploration. He describes the cutting-edge science that led to the alarming conclusion the Arctic is rapidly thawing due to human-caused climate change, with potentially devastating implications for the entire planet.
