Today the continent of Antarctica sits over the South Pole – frozen, icecovered and remote – and yet what happens on this continent affects the whole Earth. We will look at Antarctic climate, animals, oceans and ice, and how these important features of the polar environment are responding to global change. This is a team taught course led by Professor Dame Jane Francis. Some individual sessions will be taught by: Dr Peter Fretwell, Dr Emily Shuckburgh, Dr Ed King and Dr Anna Jones. Includes a visit to the British Antarctic Survey (3.2 km, c.40 mins walk, or c.20 mins bus/walk).
