Why is research in the Arctic so important for cities like Abu Dhabi?
- Campus Life
Many cities are built at sea level or slightly above it. Rising seas caused by melting ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland will reshape coastlines as we know them today.
Climate change is truly a global phenomenon; changes in one part of the globe can influence climate in another, since ocean currents and winds link distant regions.
