Swansea gets blue ice to study glaciers

Swansea University is launching a Centre for Climate Research, which will responsible for research into fast flowing glacers and ice streams as well as glacier instabilities.

Underpinning this research is a super-computer called blue ice. As one of the most powerful supercomputers in Wales, it could be a match for Derek Zoolander’s blue steel as it is also one of the most energy-efficient.

The centre aims to measure past and predict future contribution from glaciers and ice sheets to sea-level rise and in turn the reprecussions such sea level rise will have.

With time of the essence in discovering the effects of these drastic changes lets just hope that it’s a bit larger than the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good.
