A tale of two icebergs

Friday 18 March: 6:00pm - 7:00pm

The Polar Museum, Scott Polar Research Institute, Lensfield Road, CB2 1ER

Many people know of the famous sinking of the Titanic, but not much about the iceberg that hit it. Follow the story of two individual icebergs, including the famous iceberg that collided with the Titanic in April 1912 and an iceberg the size of Singapore that calved from the Pine Island Glacier of West Antarctica in November 2013. Professor Grant Bigg from the University of Sheffield discusses his research into the changing state of polar ice in the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
