Speakers: Dr Jonathan Shanklin, Head of Meteorology and Ozone Monitoring Unit, British Antarctic Survey

The pristine environment of Antarctica allows the clear and unambiguous detection of changes. The Antarctic ozone hole, which first appeared in the early 1980s, demonstrates that it is possible dramatically to change the atmosphere in as little as a decade. The mean temperature of the Antarctic Peninsular has risen by 3 degrees Celsius over the last 50 years – one of the largest changes on the planet. This talk will illustrate the Antarctic environment, focusing on these symptoms of the health of the planet and making a diagnosis of their cause.
Joint meeting with the Institute of Measurement and Control
