'There’s still a choice': New Zealand's melting glaciers show the human fingerprints of climate change
New research has found extreme melting of the country’s glaciers in 2018 was at least ten times more likely due to human-caused global heating.
Twice a year, glaciologist Lauren Vargo and her colleagues set up camp beside two small lakes close to New Zealand’s Brewster glacier. Each time the trek to carry the measuring stakes takes a little bit longer as the glacier’s terminus gets further away.
Dr Vargo, a native of Ohio now working at the Antarctic Research Centre at the Victoria University of Wellington, is studying New Zealand’s glaciers from the air and on the ice.
