Polar marine biologist Professor Lloyd Peck
‘Antarctica & The Environment’
Tuesday 21 March
1:00pm – 1:45pm
We are delighted to welcome leading polar marine biologist Professor Lloyd Peck who will be presenting a Hampton Talk! on Antarctica its environment and its life on Tuesday 21 March.
With over 30-years experience with the British Antarctic Survey, Professor Peck leads a dedicated, innovative team of polar biologists evaluating how species live in the coldest, driest windiest, most isolated place on earth. He’s carried out 19 field visits to Antarctica and conducted research in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, North America and countries in Europe. Lloyd Peck lectures at Cambridge, Portsmouth and Sunderland universities, where he holds visiting professorships and has published over 350 science papers and books.
Professor Peck has witnessed first hand how Antarctica is losing ice mass at an average rate of about 150 billion tons per year; the meltwater responsible for much of the rise in sea levels over the last two decades.
Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading polar scientists who is seeing first hand the devastating impact of global warming.
