Door County geologist Roger Kuhns will speak on “Iceland: The Rapid Melting Of Its Glaciers” at 7 pm on Oct. 1 at 10341 N. Water St. (Hwy 42), Ephraim. Kuhns will discuss and illustrate the rapid glacial melt-back occurring in Iceland during the past several decades and the impacts of this phenomenon. The reasons for the melt-back relate to increasing global temperatures, and variations in short-term weather and long-term climate. Kuhns has made several trips to Iceland, the most recent being earlier this year.
Kuhns holds a PhD in geology, and is president of the sustainable practices company SustainAudit, LLC. He is also a writer and performer of true-story monologues.
