Explore the impact of climate change at the Maritime Museum

30 September 2009

Dr Stephan Harrison of Exeter University discusses the impacts of Climate change.

How accurate are the current models that predict climate change? Are we faced with much more dramatic shifts in weather patterns than scientists have so far predicted?

During a fascinating lecture at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall on Wednesday 30 September, Dr Stephan Harrison will be exploring these questions and discussing how climate change will have an impact on us all.

Dr Harrison is Associate Professor of Quaternary Science at Exeter University and Director of Climate Change Risk Management. He has worked for twelve field seasons on the glaciers of Patagonia; five field seasons in the Tien Shan Mountains of Kazakhstan; and in Norway, Iceland and the Himalaya on landscape responses to climate change. This illustrated lecture will feature stunning photography from these regions.
