Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography

The Arctic is warming more than twice as fast as the rest of the Earth, but what are the consequences? In this talk we will look at present and future changes in the Arctic itself and how we might be affected closer to home.

The Arctic is both home to significant indigenous populations, and a location for important – and contentious – economic activity.

A number of changes have now been detected in the ocean and atmosphere, in the snow and ice cover, in the cycling of water between land, atmosphere and ocean, and in the terrestrial and marine ecosystems of the Arctic. But could we be starting to see the impact of Arctic climate change much further south?
