Clues to Climate Change – Past, Present and Future

A talk by Professor Siwan Davies, Swansea University

Professor Siwan Davies

Delwedd: www.swansea.ac.uk


For any Friend who does not know what to think about climate change, this talk could be enlightening. Professor Siwan Davies has a personal Chair in Physical Geography in the Department of Biosciences at Swansea University, and has collaborated with the universities of Copenhagen, Bangor and St Andrews to try to understand the triggers for climate change over the centuries. Her recent election to the prestigious Learned Society of Wales was an acknowledgement not only of her personal academic achievements, but also a recognition of her standing as an engaging and aspirational figure for girls who wish to embark on a career in the sciences.

Her work in climatic variability in Western Iceland, studying lake sediment records, ash layers and volcanic eruptions and the movement of ice-floes in Greenland and elsewhere has been documented in innumerable academic publications, and she is regarded as one of the leading figures internationally in her specialist field.

In her talk, Professor Davies will describe how her detective work in paleoclimates is shedding light on the intriguing and ever topical subject of climate change, past, present and future.

The admission charge for this event, to include post-lecture coffee and biscuits in the Oriel Suite, is 8 for Friends’ pre-paid bookings, or 10 at the door.
