Please note the event time has changed - it will now start at 2.00pm.
Rob Storrar from Sheffield Hallam University is interested in glaciers and the landscapes they leave behind at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. His research focuses predominantly on understanding the dynamics and hydrology of glacial systems, from contemporary individual Icelandic glaciers to the ancient continental ice sheets.
In particular, he is interested in the fluctuations of large ice sheets over millennial timescales and what controls their dynamism, especially the importance of meltwater. Understanding ancient systems can be used to predict how modern ice sheets might respond to a changing climate.
This short talk, followed by a Q&A, is part of a Geography & Environmental Science hot topics series which aims to introduce complex, contemporary geographical issues in an accessible and engaging format.
This event has been organised by the Yorkshire and North East committee.
