Meet the Scientist – November 18th
Rays from outer space & the icy time machine
Gordon is a geologist who wants to understand what makes our climate work and how it will change in the future. Digging around in the soil and rocks of Ireland and the Andes, or roaming the Antarctic Ice Sheet, Gordon searches for geologic evidence of past climate change and even uses extra-terrestrial radiation to make new data! Gordon will elaborate on what makes his a muddy yet fascinating job.
