(April 2019), Kingston, Ontario — As part of an international research collaboration, Queen’s University scientist and lead Canadian researcher Laura Thomson examined the contribution of Canadian glaciers and ice caps to global sea level rise.

Taking into account statistical uncertainties, the findings suggest the mass loss of glaciers may be larger than previously reported.
