UA Researcher Helps to Understand Possible Antarctic Glacier Collapse

Dr. Rebecca Totten Minzoni, an assistant professor of geological sciences, has a role to play as a marine geologist and paleontologist in the roughly $25 million research collaboration. She will use her expertise in finding clues to the past behavior of Thwaites Glacier through what is left behind in the offshore sediment to inform models for how the glacier could behave in the future.
