The Shear Zones that hold back the ice sheets.
David Prior, University of Otago
September Meeting (in combination with Manawatū Branch, Geoscience Society of NZ)
Dave will deliver a talk that 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.
7.30 pm Wednesday 7 September (Note change from usual date) Palmerston North Central Library, George Street,
