8:10 am
landscape a hididn world inside the ice. joining me is danan morgan, a glacier expert from vanderbilt university. he'll be walking us through what our ice climbers see as they go into that massive ice tunnel so let's s send them on their way, all right. hey, guys, go for it. go ahead and start ice climbing. all right. so the guys are just now starting their descent right now. tell me, dan, whatt researchers hope to find when they get to the bottom and see wt is a the bottom of sinkholes like this one. >> tse kind of vtical caves give us a real cross section into the glaer so you can tell how the glacier has been flowiwing and how compressed the ice is, what it's carrying with it and you can't do that unless you get in there and get to see it yourself. >> as they start to go down we see these bands of dark. what is that that we're looking at in the ice? >> so, that's the debris that the glacier is c carrying with it. some is ash from the volcanoes that erupt and deposit ash on top of the glacier and some is probobably debs from the base of
8:11 am
up and bringing along with it too. >> how s significa is the melting that we' seeing here in terms of contributions to the rising sea levels we see a across the atlantic and other oceans. >> yeah, i meanhat's melting here gets into the ocean and contributes to sea level rise that we see in the east coast of the u.s. rig now. >> how fast is this glacier, the vatnajokull glacier melting? >> yeah, so right now it's actually retreating at about 300 feet every year. so it's going almost a foot a day that it's retreatingack but it's also thinng and lowering at about 100 feet a year right now. >> all right. >> it's retreating and thinning. >> as we watch our climbers descend into this tuel, this ice cave, how and why do these form in the first place? >> yeah, these are melt water ponds that form on top of the glacier from warm days and actually cloudy days sometimes too and those ponds suddenly drain through cracks in the glacier and eose these amazing vertical tunnels. >> all right. we also want to say as we're
8:12 am
climbers go down into this hole, how do they meare -- you mention numberings, how fast these glaciers are melting. how d do they measure that. >> yeah, here in iceland actually there is a long tradition of icelandic people monitoring and marking where the glacier used to be for actually hundreds of years they've been doing th. now we can do some with sallite technology and we're doing it with drones now. >> right and how do scientists use these drones for their researchch what do these drones show them that we couldn't hav otherwise en. >> right, drones are really sorting cutting edge technology for scientists. they give us access tolace we otherwise couldn't g get to and able toonitor things closely on a daily basis that y and what's amazing is they give u us realtime and 3d information abouhow earth's fast is changing. >> and do you know what the bottom looks like ase're watching this incredibleideo of our climbers? i mean this iseally remarkable watchi them scale this massive
8:13 am
it takes tremendous skl, tremendous expert but it's all to get to the ttom, what do you expect they'll see when they get downn there and what will we awe seal? >> this is one of the most interesting and least known parts of glacier resech. how does water help lubricate it to flow faster. >> we're looking att melting ice literally. >> yeah. this is all melted icehat drained out through thiss cavern system, gototo the basef the glacier and probably helped himim flow faster and thin and end up in the sea. >> incredible and, george, you have a question. >> i i wanted to ask dan, first of all, such a stunning sight but have we ever seen meltingike this before in other periods of history or is this all brand new? >> have we ever seen, george wants to know periods of melting like this in history or is this the first of its kind that we ow of. >> yeah, so throughout geologic
8:14 am
2 million years we've gone through warm periods but what we're seeing is a real rid increase in the rate of thinning and melting that we'reeeing and that's related to human induced climate change >> w, r robin, you have a question. >> i do. could you ask d how does this compare, what we' seeing here, other places in theworld, greenland, other places that are -- have glaciers. dan,obin wants to know how -- what we're seeing here, this melting, how does it comparare to other glaciers around the world, say, in greenland or ininther areas you've studidi antarctica, as well. >> this is sometng we're seeing particularly in eenland, lots. melting on the surface and melting at the base of greenland, as well. there was discuss a few papers that came o saying basically new floodgate has been released in greenland and we're melting a lot morethere. parts of antarctica are deaf increasingheir rates too so this is something we're s seeing globally. it's not just something we're seeing in little pockets here and there all over t the world we're seeing glaciers retrereat at pretty alarming raras.
8:15 am
>yeah, the rates are -- it depends a lot o on how fast the glacier is flowi but this is pretty comparable. it can be a little slower innant ka because it's a little colder >> this is just remarkable as we're looking at this. looks like the climbers have made it to the bottom of this massive ice tunnel and i've got my radio here so let's see what they're seeing or hear what it was like for them. good morning, guys. i want to check in with you. this is amy again. you made it to the bottom? >> that's ght.t. standing at the bottom. it's awesome. >> he said it's awesome. soell me what you're seeing. >> he' seeing a drone. >> hey, climbers, tale ersclimbers, tell m what you're seeing. describe what you're looking at. everything is awesome.
8:16 am
>>rystal clear ice, black and blue ice. i can tell you one thing, i have a challenging climb in front of me. >> yes, he does. >> a challenging climb ahead. >>veverything is awesome and, yes, that's right. so it was vy quick as we noticed for those climbers to come down the descent. now getting back up is going to take a lot longer, so it's quite a tremendndous eort for them to get back up and so we'rere going to let t them head back up and let's send one of our drones over to an active ice melt that is actually h happening right now and, dan, while we send that drone ove in at direction, you have some rare fossils to show us and they tell us something about climate change, yes? i know we have these heavy gloves on and have to dig into the bag here. but we can learn a lot from what's around us. >> what's amazi about these is
8:17 am
collected from the debris the glacier carved up and deposited. these are about 5,000 to 7,000 years old but fossils that only live in warmm saltwater so we know that 11,0 years ago there was no ice here, the ocean was much warmer and these warm gastropod lived in a shallow sea. >> incredible. >> sin then the glaciers readvanced and have gotten bigger and scraped tm back up andd deposit themmor us to find. >> as we send our drone over there to the massive melting over at this glier, tell us where this water is all headed. where this melting ice is going. it has to go somewhere, as you said if we can actually see it forming in the river down here d will end up at the coast a few mys down there and it willll end up all in the ocean and contributes to sea level rise there. >> when you talk about contribute to seaea level rise, how much?
8:18 am
to the rising seawaters that are impacting the very shores of t the united states. >> yeah, so, i mean what we're seeing sorort of in places like miami might be an inch of sea level rise every year ov there. what's coming out of this glacier right here, the way to sort of visualize it, imagine a tanker for a cargo ship. 2,000 of those are coming out every hour from this glacier that is melting out and that's what's been going on here so there's a lot of melt water coming out. >> the big question is how do we stop? >> that's the big question. what do we do to mitigate and adapt and be resilient to climate change. >> and glacier scientists such as yourself, is this the question that you're trying to ckle to figur out how to help the world protect itself from itself? >> yeah, so i'm really interested in how glaciers change size over time, how quickly do they retreat so i study how they have changed in the past t toive us a sense of is it going to go back slowly, quickly, will it take a giant step all at once. how will it happen.
8:19 am
by our side through this process. we appreciateit. she's climbers slowly making their way back up to the top of that massive ice tunnel. we will check bk in with them in just a bit. in the meantime, let's head back to you in times square. >> thank you, amy. thank you, dan. the whole team. >> we learned so much. >> we talk about global warping all the time but to have a picture to sort of put it -- >> you couldn't take your eyes off the screen. >> showing those fossils tell you how much the earth changes butot this fast. that's what's alarming with the warming here. you know, in sympathy off amy being out there, i'm going to go outside without a coat. it's about 277 degrees outside but 2015 thehe warmest year on record, in fact, part due to el nino but new york has been very warm. we got a hearty bunch here. big waves out west, high surf advisothis means that we'll have some drizzle and flurries around the area tomorrow. on thursday, we'll have a continuation of very light precipitation chances. then friday we'll probably receive about 1 to 2 inches of snow. your forecast for this tuesday calls for mostly cloudy skies and a light brbreeze as we make it to a high of 33.hevernight
