Hochstetter Lecture

2022 Hochstetter Lecturer

David Prior


Dave will deliver a talk entitled ‘The shear zones that hold back the ice sheets’, which will showcase the lateral thinking of using geophysical and geological methods to study the physics of ice, which is also highly relevant to our society as it informs ice sheet modelling and predictions for a warmer world.

This work will appeal to both professional scientists and the general public, and will include some entertaining examples of field work in Antarctica, the vital participation of students, and the need for scientific teamwork.

The details of Dave's talk and tour will be made available later in the year.
