Aberystwyth University has introduced six unique Climate Change degree courses starting in September 2020. To formally launch these new degree courses they have partnered with Channel Talent to provide you with a series of live online webinars suitable for any KS5 student interested in the topic of Climate Change.
Full Event Details:
In this interactive lecture, physicists from Aberystwyth University will discuss how we are working on issues linked to climate change. Students will be asked regular questions during the session and are free to asks questions throughout.
Physics touches many aspects of our everyday life in ways you may not realise; from the study of the very small in materials physics to the very large in space physics. In this session we will consider the different careers using physics and some of the ways physics is being used to investigate the realities of climate change.
The session will discuss the fundamental physics behind some of the effects of climate change being observed, how we use space weather observations, and the research into renewable energy sources, such as solar, to meet our rising energy demands in a sustainable way.
The key topics discussed in this session are:
-Careers in physics
-Fundamental physics of climate change – Newton’s Cooling Law
-Space weather and climate change
-Renewable energy sources – Solar
