A Free (LivMS) Spring Popular Lecture, suitable for Y11 and above, teachers and the public:
‘Lakes, Rivers… and Waterfalls? The Surprising Things Maths Can Help Us to Understand About Antarctica’ by Dr Sammie Buzzard
Maths meets climate change in this face-to-face talk from University of Cardiff glaciologist and climate scientist, Dr Sammie Buzzard.
Her research interest focuses on the surface hydrology of Antarctica’s ice shelves, and she works on modelling how and where ice shelves may become vulnerable to sudden collapse. This is important in determining Antarctica’s contribution to the global sea level. She also has interests in Greenland surface hydrology and snow and melt on Arctic sea ice.
She has a strong interest in science communication and has spoken at Maths Inspiration theatre shows for teenagers, at the Royal Society and at various festivals, schools and museums. She has also spoken on live radio for Radio 4’s Today Programme and BBC Berkshire.
Date: Thursday 10th March, 5pm – 6pm, 502 Teaching Hub (University of Liverpool)
