Event description

Description

Join us for a public lecture, short film and the opportunity to 'hear' climate change!

A British Science Week event presents:

‘Exploring the Greenland Ice Sheet - Science, Sound and Film’

Have you ever wondered why the Greenland Ice Sheet is so important? How scientists collect data to help us to understand the changes taking place? Or perhaps how we can 'hear' climate change? Then come along to our British Science Week event!

Dr Danni Pearce, from the University of Hertfordshire, will guide you through the history of the last 1000 years of the Greenland Ice Sheet and there will also be a screening of a short documentary-film showing footage from her last two scientific expeditions to Greenland, together with a display of photographic prints.

In addition to the talk, there will be a number of other 'glacier science' mini events. James Wyness will showcase a contemporary art project, which sets scientific data to sound (sonification), enabling you to ‘hear’ climate change and Dr Phil Porter will be demonstrating glacier field equipment and taking you ‘inside the glacier’ using animations, visualisations and virtual reality technology!

We will also be on hand to answer your questions!


FAQs

How many can attend the event?

Tickets are limited so please register to avoid disappointment!


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This event is more suited to adults, although children are welcome. However, there will be an interactive glacier science event running from 15:30 - 18:00, in the same location, which is open to schools.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Car parking is free after 5:30pm on College Lane Campus.
