Many of us had time off this week to celebrate the holidays or spend a few cozy days curled up at home. Not everyone, though. We hear from University of Oregon scientist Kiya Riverman, who's on the remote and wind-swept Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica right now. And we re-air reporter Carolyn Beeler's story from Riverman's trip to the glacier last winter.
