It’s been well reported that over the last few decades, changes in sea ice cover have been happening in different places around the world. However, a new study from Melbourne University released this month shows that the changes are more dramatic than expected, and we now face some sea ice disappearing from the Arctic altogether within a very short period of time. Lead Investigator Professor Ian Simmonds from the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne, will join us to talk about his group’s work, and some of the impacts on not only sea ice, but their neighbouring oceans.
Then we’ll be catching up with David Doubilet, regarded by many as one of the world’s foremost underwater photographers. David’s work is the subject of an upcoming National Geographic Live! talk and presentation called Coral, Fire and Ice: Explore Secret Underwater Worlds at Hamer Hall, which features the beauty of the coral triangle contrasted against the magnificence of icebergs and shipwrecks in the icy waters of Antarctica.
Dr Beach will be in with some wild marine science.
And if that wasn’t enough…Makana (Hawaiin legendary slack key guitarist) will join us live in studio with Sean Willmore (Thin Green Line) to talk more about the TGL work and big Gala fundraiser next week, and to give us a taste of what's in store on the night.
