An event I thought some of you might be interested in, and I am going to:
INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS ENVIRONMENTAL PHYSICS GROUP - ENVIRONMENTAL PHYSICS DAY
Location: IOP Headquarters: 76 Portland Place London W1B 1NT
FREE to IOP members, and just £10 to non-members - But you do need to REGISTER (see below)
This relaxed and informal event on Wednesday 25th May starts with lunch at 1pm, and then a series of talks from 1.45. There is also an opportunity to find out about this years essay winners as they will receive their prizes on the day. The group’s AGM starts at 5.40pm, which is particularly important this year due to a number of committee changes.
Confirmed speakers at the event include:
* “Climate Change - Natural, man made or both?” Terri Jackson.
* “Thermodynamics of the climate system” Salvatore Pascale, University of Reading.
* “Climate mitigation: sustainable preferences and cumulative carbon.” Simon Buckle, Grantham Institute for Climate Change, Imperial College.
* “The prediction and observation of volcanic ash clouds during the Eyjafjallajökull eruption” Helen Dacre, University of Reading.
* “Bioelectromagnetics - some unforeseen societal problems”.” Anne Silk, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
* “Bella Gaia - Bringing Environmental Physics into the Classroom” Sotira Trifourki, iUniverse Planetarium.
At 6.30pm, Prof John Shepherd FRS, University of Southampton will give a talk on “Geoengineering the Climate: An Overview and Update”, which is held jointly with the London and South-East Branch. For more details, see our latest newsletter, which is also available online at:
