Antarctica: a continent for science
In this talk I explore why Antarctica is so important to the world of science and relevant to our understanding of the future global environment. It is a touchstone of environmental change and can tell us much about our past...and our future. I have explored some of the key scientific sites with world class environmental scientists and here share my insights, illustrated by amazing photographs.
Antarctica is a continent where science is the first priority. Novel ways of extracting data from its environment help us understand past climates and how the continent affects our whole planet.
