Renowned Geologist to Discuss ‘Antarctica’s Ice in Earth’s Climate System’
Kathy Licht, associate professor of Earth sciences, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), will discuss her work on the impact of the global climate systems in Antarctica, in a joint presentation of the Women in Scientific and Environmental Professions (WiSE Professions) Speaker Series, Cross Disciplinary Seminar in Hydrology and Biogeochemical Processes and the Environmental Scholars Program. Licht’s research focuses on “understanding the history of the Antarctic ice sheet so we can better understand what causes it to advance and retreat and how that fits in with the global climate system.” Licht earned IUPUI’s School of Science Research Award (2014), and advises IUPUI’s Geology Club. She holds a a B.S., natural sciences, St. Norbert College, and a M.S. & Ph.D., geological sciences, University of Colorado, Boulder.
