Vanishing Ice

 

Lonnie Thompson is a climate science pioneer. He has led dangerous high altitude expeditions across the world to drill ice core samples from glaciers and ice sheets. He and his colleagues have collected more than 4 miles of ice samples that span thousands of years. They are stored at Ohio State University, where Thompson has worked a Distinguished Professor in Earth Sciences. Find out how this environmental hero used sheer determination, muscle, mules, and low- tech equipment to preserve the earth's frozen history.
