Antarctica and how it is being affected by climate change will be the topic of a free public lecture on Monday in Norwich.
Oceanographer and geologist Dr Colin Summerhayes, executive director of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (Scar) at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, will give the talk at the University of East Anglia.
Entitled Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment: Melting Ice, Rising Seas - a Creeping Catastrophe? the lecture covers a range of areas, bringing together climate change impacts and environmental policy responses.
Scar has recently published the first comprehensive review of the state of Antarctica's climate and its relationship with the global climate system, and this lecture will discuss its major findings.
