The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the planet and is a marker for what's to come. Particle and industrial pollution effect the color and brightness by depositing debris layers on ice and this darkening has important consequences. "Albedo" is the measure of how much light that hits a surface is reflected or absorbed. Debris, however small, heats glacial surfaces by reducing its reflectance. Collaborating with the climate of Colorado, my work explores this loss of ice and the release of information through melting.
