Data from KU's CReSIS used to predict Antarctic melting

The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS, has been studying the mechanics of ice on the Antarctic continent, as well as Greenland, since the 1990s and making its data publicly available for other scientists to study. Recently teams of scientists used the center's public data to predict runaway melting of glaciers in Antarctica that could lead to a steep rise in sea levels.
