Congratulations to Jean Liu, a graduate student in Earth Sciences, on the recent publication of her Masters’ thesis results in the journal Nature Geoscience. In her M.Sc., Jean studied the largest and most rapid ice melt event reconstructed from geological records (known as Meltwater Pulse 1A). The event has been linked to an instability of the Antarctic ice sheet and so may have implications for understanding how quickly this ice sheet could respond to future climate warming.
