re:publica 2017: Antarctica un-plugged

At this year's re:publica conference, PIK-scientist Ricarda Winkelmann invites in a multimedia lecture to a journey far south. Update: recording available online. --- "Climate scientists see complicated code and algorithms on their screens – but through the huge amounts of data they can also see the past and future evolution of our oceans, forests or the polar ice caps. With one of the best computer models of Antarctica you can explore the ice-covered continent, but why should you care? Because burning all of the world’s available fossil-fuel resources would result in the complete melting of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, whose ice masses store water equivalent to more than 50 meters of sea-level rise."
