On 19 October, to mark Green Great Britain Week, Opera North is hosting the Priestly Centre for Climate lecture Unfrozen: Reports from the Ice, in the Howard Assembly Room, 12.30 – 13.30.
New reports show that underwater melt-off in the Antarctic is doubling every 20 years, with significant implications for sea level rise.
Aimed at a general audience, University of Leeds scientists including Dr Christian Maerz of the NERC Changing Arctic Ocean Seafloor (ChAOS) project and Dr Jenine McCutcheon of the NERC Black and Bloom project describe the changes they have witnessed during this lunchtime lecture, followed by a chance to ask questions.
Book your place here.
This event will also be livestreamed via the University of Leeds YouTube channel.
Unfrozen is presented by the Priestley International Centre for Climate and the NERC Changing Arctic Ocean project
Opera North and the Centre are also working together to explore how Opera North practices can be developed to minimise environmental impact.
