Mathieu Morlighem, the Evans Family Distinguished Professor of Earth Sciences, is a glaciologist who is studying the impact of climate change on ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica using computer models and satellite imagery.

In this faculty profile, Morlighem, who helps lead Dartmouth’s Changing Polar Regions academic cluster, talks about how that work applies to sea level rise, which he calls “probably one of the greatest challenges that humanity is facing.”
