SciBar – September 19th – Accidentally Exploring Antarctica: a ramble through 5 years of research at the bottom of the world

The Antarctic is our climate change early warning system. Studying climate here allows us to more accurately predict the extent of climate change in the rest of the world. However some of the most critical areas of the Antarctic are still largely inaccessible to scientific exploration. Dr David Jones will discuss his experience designing and deploying sensors over 5 Antarctic expeditions, in order to monitor the effects of global warming on icebergs and glaciers.
