Brunt, Petty quoted in Baltimore Sun

ESSIC researchers Alek Petty and Kelly Brunt were quoted in a Baltimore Sun article on the recent calving of the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica. The researchers were specifically asked if the event could be connected or attributed to global warming, but both scientists felt the calving was part of the normal ice shelf splintering and recovery processes that have occurred in the past and will continue in the future.
