The Forum - Ice

What’s it like to get up close and personal with an iceberg? And how is the future of ice bound up with our own? We ask a glaciologist, an ice engineer and a polar photographer.

A journey into the kingdom of ice, with Danish glaciologist Poul Christoffersen, just back from measuring the effects of a warming ocean on the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica; American engineer Mary Albert who studies ancient snow cores for crucial past climate clues; and Camille Seaman, a Native American artist whose photos of polar icebergs are ‘portraits of individuals’.
