A Very Short Introduction to...Mountains
Tuesday 29 March
Mountains cover a quarter of the Earth's land and are central to our ecosystems. They are the sources of all the world's major rivers, affect regional weather patterns, provide centres of biological and cultural diversity, hold deposits of minerals, and provide both active and contemplative recreation. Yet mountains are also significantly affected by climate change; as melting and retreating glaciers show. In this event, Martin Price outlines why mountains matter and addresses the existing and likely impacts of climate change on mountain, hydrological and ecological systems.
#SciPals student ticket offer is available on this event.
