Talking ice with Erin Pettit

Glaciologist Erin Pettit likes ice, and has studied everything from the flow of entire glaciers to the physics of individual crystals. She has also shared her passion through Girls on Ice, a program that introduces young women to science and the outdoors. Check out my interview with Pettit over at EARTH Magazine.

Among the subjects Pettit studies is the interaction of seawater and ice at tidewater glaciers like Alaska's Meares Glacier. (Credit: Eric Chase via Wikimedia)
