The Antarctic ice sheet is changing as a consequence of climate warming, and in ways that are deeply concerning to our planet in terms of global sea level rise and heat retention.
In this talk, Professor Martin Siegert from Imperial College London explains how we know what is happening, what the consequences are likely to be, what we can do about it and what changes are locked in. There is great uncertainty on the value of future sea-level rise and he will explain some of this complexity and what research might allow us to better understand the processes involved.
Martin also examines the problem by considering the technological advances that allow us to undertake science in one of the most extreme and isolated places on Earth and how future technological developments can be used to measure key sections of the ice sheet that are very difficult to access directly. The outcome will be a greater awareness of how Antarctica is changing, what measures we need to take to mitigate the problem and the need to adapt to changes that are now inevitable.
This event has been organised by the South committee.
