Book Talk: Brave New Arctic, by Mark Serreze

Brave New Arctic: The Untold Story of the Melting North

A book talk by NSIDC Director and CIRES Fellow Mark Serreze

From publisher Princeton University Press: In the 1990s, researchers in the Arctic noticed that floating summer sea ice had begun receding. This was accompanied by shifts in ocean circulation and unexpected changes in weather patterns throughout the world. The Arctic’s perennially frozen ground, known as permafrost, was warming, and treeless tundra was being overtaken by shrubs. What was going on? Brave New Arctic is Mark Serreze’s riveting firsthand account of how scientists from around the globe came together to find answers.

This event is free and open to the public, but please register through EventBrite. After the talk and discussion, join us for refreshments and a book signing. A representative of the Boulder Bookstore will have books for sale (cash and credit card).
