Enderlin to discuss Greenland ice sheet, Mount Desert Islander reports

Mount Desert Islander reported Ellyn Enderlin, a research assistant professor at the University of Maine Climate Change Institute and School of Earth and Climate Sciences, will speak in Bar Harbor on May 5. Enderlin will discuss the drastic changes to the Earth’s oceans as a result of the melt of the Greenland ice sheet. Her talk, part of the College of the Atlantic’s Seminar on Climate Change Speaker Series, will begin at 4:10 p.m. in McCormick Lecture Hall, according to the article. Enderlin has devoted her research to learning about how the massive body of ice is likely to move and change in these uncertain times, the article states. The Greenland ice sheet, Enderlin said, is extremely important because it contains enough ice to raise sea levels by an average of six meters.
