Host: Fraser Cain

Special Guest: Dr. Jeff Kargel is a Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson, Arizona. He is a geologist, a glaciologist, and a planetary scientist. Prior to joining PSI in 2018, he worked at the University of Arizona and the U.S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff. His interests in geology started in the 4th Grade when he discovered marine fossils in the construction limestone of his front yard, and interest in planetary science began on Christmas Eve, 1968, when the Apollo 8 astronauts read, on live television from lunar orbit, the Biblical creation story. His current research is published in nearly 200 scientific articles plus over 400 abstracts about glaciers, glacial lakes, landslides, and earthquakes in the Himalaya; and ice, organic, salt, and other volatile chemistry from Mercury to Pluto, the composition and origin of Earth and other Solar System bodies, and possibilities for future mining of platinum and other resources of asteroids. His research has taken him to glaciers in ten countries around the world, and by way of spacecraft data, to glaciers on Mars. Climate change is a major thread, and that is what he is here today to talk about.
