The International Polar Year, which began in March 2007, will see a concerted international scientific effort focussed on the polar regions. This talk will explain the background to some of the projects planned for the Arctic, where the dramatic effects of climate change and increasing pollution have already become apparent. See www.ipy.org for more information.

Professor Elizabeth Morris is a Senior Associate at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University, and is a Visiting Professor at the Earth Systems Science Centre, Reading University. Her research has included mathematical modelling of physical processes in snow, extensive fieldwork in alpine and polar regions, and experimental laboratory studies on ice and snow. She is now part of a consortium working on calibration and validation for the CryoSat satellite.

This event is free and open to all.
