Congratulations to professor of geography Marshall Shepherd, who was recently voted president-elect of the American Meteorological Society:
Shepherd, who directs the university’s Atmospheric Sciences Program, will begin a one-year term as president...
I watched this NOVA presentation over the holidays, and while you might think that nothing could move as slow as a glacier, they are unfortunately not shifting all that slowly. The scientists on the program were able to measure movement that, while imperceptible to the naked eye, equaled about 130 feet per day. That is amazing. And alarming.
