Antarctica's subglacial lakes
We decided to run these lectures so that staff and students from across the School, and the university as a whole, can get an idea as to what is going on "behind-the-scenes" in the department.
The first lecturer to speak for us is Professor Martin Siegert, who's very kindly agreed to give us a talk all about Antarctica's subglacial lakes, specifically Lake Ellsworth (which he actually discovered in 1996), and also more about the research that Martyn Tranter and him will be conducting during their trip to Antarctica in three weeks' time.
As many of you will know, this is a very exciting subject and it will be very interesting to hear about the cutting-edge research that will be going on in Antarctica!
Please do come along, it will be a great talk and hopefully this will be the first of many such Geogsoc one-off talks to come.
The talk is open to all staff and students, so even if you're a human geographer who's never studied glaciology before, come along and hear all about it!
