Meet the Glaciologists Saturday, 13 October 2018 10:00 AM

Come in and meet UK Glaciologists and find out how their work in Greenland is helping us to understand our changing world. Watch amazing time-lapse footage and get your hands on real field kit to transform into an intrepid arctic explorer.

Charlie Bunce and Alexis Moyer from the University of Edinburgh use a combination of satellite images, time-lapse camera footage and ice-melt modelling to better understand how glaciers on the margins of the Greenland Ice Sheet will respond to a changing climate.

Doug Mair from the University of Liverpool has been part of the ambitious CALVE (Calving Glaciers: Long-Term Validation and Evidence) project which aims to improve our knowledge of how the rate of iceberg production relates to climate change using archaeology, glaciology and marine biology. Come and find out about their research experiences in Greenland and beyond.
