NASA Scientist Speaks At Iowa Capitol



Bookmark and Share

An Iowa native who works as a NASA scientist is scheduled to speak with Iowa lawmakers on Monday about climate change and its effect on the earth's polar regions.
 
Nathan Kurtz, a Fort Madison native, will talk to legislators at noon at the Capitol.
 
He is a NASA researcher working on Operation IceBridge, a project to capture detailed images of polar ice and to measure changes in thickness of sea ice, glaciers, and ice sheets. The data is used to predict the response of polar ice to climate change and resulting sea-level rise.
 
Sen. Rob Hogg, a Cedar Rapids Democrat, says Iowans need to learn about climate change and its effects on our future.
 
Kurtz will also speak Monday night at 7 p.m. at First Unitarian Church in Des Moines.
