Antarctica is covered in dynamic and large ice sheets, but what did it look like millions of years ago?

How has our warming global climate changed the rate of melting on our coldest continent? 

Join Claire Jasper, Columbia University Graduate Student, to understand how scientists are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to determine ice sheet melt rates over the last 3 million years, and the impact of melting ice on sea levels.
