Thwaites Glacier project now underway

The Tulane cosmogenic nuclide lab is proud to be part of the US-UK International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration. Eight projects will be investigating Thwaites Glacier and the surrounding region from all avenues and both present and past in order to better understand its possible future. The Tulane lab will be part of the Geologic History Constraints team where we will be drilling through Thwaites Glacier to collect subglacial bedrock to see if and when Thwaites Glacier was smaller than today and if so, how did it regrow.
