Interview with Professor Jason Box – Atmospheric river Rapids (& the Global Deluge)

Nick Breeze

Nick Breeze

Climate journalist and host of the ClimateGenn podcast.

In this ClimateGenn episode with Professor Jason Box we discuss how high resolution tools reveal that the Greenland ice sheet is tipping from a regime of winter snowfall to extreme deluges of rain. 

Jason calls these ‘Atmospheric River Rapids’. These intense downpours add mechanisms that accelerate the break up of the ice sheet and are not reflected in the IPCC reports. 

He also highlights how these mechanisms have similar characteristics to what we see in the increased flash flooding events around the world, which are directly linked to the increase in global heating.
