Geology in the News

UB is co-leading GreenDrill, a project that will bring teams to the Greenland Ice Sheet to investigate one of Earth’s largely unexplored frontiers: the bedrock that lies below the ice.
UB Climate scientist Beata Csatho is co-author of a new study that makes precise, detailed measurements of how the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have changed over 16 years.
