Littoral Space 1.5: Learning about Antarctica and Climate Change with Dr Gordon Bromley

Episode 1.5 available through:

Dr Gordon Bromley, Discipline of Geography NUIG, shares his experiences of working in Antarctica and explains how he studies historical climate change using glaciers and rocks. His research employs a primarily glacial-geologic approach and a Big Picture vantage to reconstruct past change, information we can then use to better understand the present and inform projections of the future. This episode’s focus on a physical geographic topic illustrates the breadth of the discipline and how the human and the natural intersect.
