Mayewski speaks with Popular Science about Everest research

Paul Mayewski, director of the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, spoke with Popular Science about research from the most comprehensive scientific expedition to Mount Everest. CCI scientists joined others in the 2019 National Geographic and Rolex Perpetual Planet Everest Expedition, which resulted in several papers published in the interdisciplinary scientific journal One Earth. “This special edition accounts for like 20 percent of the information we collected,” Mayewski said. “I believe this expedition will produce around 50 to 100 new papers. It’s really comprehensive.”
