Sea level rise is a much discussed symptom of climate change. While some ideas for curbing glacial melting have been proposed, few geoengineering solutions have been implemented. However, current research by University postdoctoral research associate Michael Wolovick indicates that there exists a practical solution for glacial melting. Wolovick is investigating glacial sills, or walls made of rock and silt, as a way to block glaciers from exposure to warm water and keep them from melting.
