If you have a question about this talk, please contact Catherine Pearson.

The world’s ice-covered areas are undergoing a period of somewhat rapid change. This has led to a new series of challenges in predicting future ice levels and their effect on global climate, and also to a new series of opportunities for the hydrocarbon and marine industries. A number of current scientific and technical problems thus rely on an understanding of the behaviour of ice. Dr Lishman will discuss these scientific and technical problems within their political context, and give an introduction to the physical behaviour of ice at the poles. He will also discuss his own work on ice friction, and its varied applications.
