Continental Loss: The Quest for Antarctica’s Contribution to Sea Level Rise

Date: June 25, 2017
Time: 1:30pm

Location:

Meeting Room, QVMAG at Inveresk
2 Invermay Rd, Invermay TAS 7248

Details:

For over 50 years scientists have been working to understand Antarctica’s contribution to sea level. For much of this time there has been disagreement about if this massive ice sheet is even growing or shrinking. In 2012, advances in data analysis and computer modelling resulted in the first reconciled estimate of change being achieved. This lecture will explain some of the major advances that led to this reconciled estimate, which revealed that Antarctica is increasingly contributing to sea-level rise.

RSVPs are essential. RSVP by Thursday 22nd June 2017.
