Steve will discuss ice shelves, the cause of their instability, and results from his Dartmouth-University of Maine robot ground-penetrating radar project that is investigating the possibility destabilizing flow dynamics, crevassing, marine ice, and exotic wing cracks in a critical shear zone that defines a margin of the massive Ross ice Shelf.
