Why are the ice shelves collapsing?

From Standup Mathematician.

Yes, I’m doing a show in LA on Sunday January 7. It’s a bit last-minute. Come and say hi! https://www.flapperscomedy.com/shows/an-evening-of-unnecessary-detail/72865/

Huge thanks to Sammie for sharing her equations. Check out her work at Northumbria University: https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/our-staff/b/sammie-buzzard/

Sammie’s very good MATLAB code! https://researchdata.reading.ac.uk/121/

Thanks to the Reading Biscuit Factory for letting us film in their lovely cafe. https://www.readingbiscuitfactory.co.uk/

I went to Antarctica with Hurtigruten. https://www.hurtigruten.com/en-us/expeditions/destinations/antarctica-cruises/

Huge thanks to my Patreon supporters. They bought me that coffee I was drinking. Sammie only wanted a glass of ice water. I swear I offered her other beverages but no, she’s too on-brand for that. https://www.patreon.com/standupmaths
