Melting ice sheets contributed much more to rising sea levels than thermal expansion of warming ocean waters during the Last Interglacial Period, a UA-led team of researchers has found. The results further suggest that ocean levels continue to rise long after warming of the atmosphere levels off.
The Keep Engaging Youth in Science program connects Arizona high school students with UA researchers and staff, helping them to gain a better understading of the world of research, and their place in it.
Two UA student teams from the UA are conducting experiments in zero gravity this week as part of NASA's Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. The teams are among 14 from universities across the nation whose projects were selected by NASA.
