IGS Global Seminar Series - 2nd Sept Frank Pattyn and his piano

Murray T.
International Glaciological Society Global Seminar Series 2020
Sept 2nd 2020 - Seminar #18
Frank Pattyn, Universite Libre de Bruxelles
"The uncertain future of the Antarctic ice sheet" or The Sound and Harmony of the Marine Ice Sheet Instability

Frank promises a talk linking ice physics to music theory and using that to illustrate concepts such as MISI and uncertainty in model projections. The seminar will involve a piano. He also promises it will also be technically feasible!


You need to register in advance for the seminars, but your registration should last for several seminars. If it was a while ago that you registered - check your link still works and drop me an email if it doesn't. There's a short question to answer - please tell me enough to accept you! I'll be doing that manually, so just be kind and make it obvious (even if I met you once at AGU)… (something like: I'm a PhD student with X... or whatever). Using your official university email address would make my life particularly easy!



After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the seminar. If you attended this week you use the same link next week and don't need to re-register.
