Fairbrother Lecture 2016: A slippery situation: melting ice in Antarctica

Sammie Buzzard, PhD researcher, Department of Meteorology

The Graduate School presents the annual Fairbrother lecture, named after Jack Fairbrother, who in 1929 became the first student to be awarded a PhD from the University. This event is a great opportunity for a wider audience to hear from one of our current, or recent, Reading PhD researchers about their exciting research.

In this year’s lecture, Sammie Buzzard will discuss some of the key issues around global warming and climate change; in particular, the collapse of ice shelves in Antarctica. Sammie’s doctoral research aims to help us better predict the speed and rate at which these ice shelves – one twice the size of Wales – will continue to melt and she will explain the wider
impact of this occurrence
