Full Event Details:
The Department of Meteorology has launched a series of school-targeted evening lectures, as part of their public engagement commitments. We aim to engage and inspire students, their teachers and parents/guardians by exposing them to the latest research questions in Meteorology, Climate and Environmental Physics.
In this evening lecture Ross Reynolds will guide us through the fascinating world of weather satellites and the physics behind them. How are they launched into space? How do they keep in orbit? What is the science behind remote sensing? Ross will explore solar and terrestrial radiation, alongside physical processes within the atmosphere.
