Inside ice - Antarctica and climate change
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree LevelPostgraduate Certificate
Degree NamePostgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies
This project is a focused study on Antarctica and climate change for the purposes of developing communications materials for use in a Museum setting. Specifically, the content is structured as a shooting script for a planetarium show. The visuals described include both filmed content and animated sequences. Focusing on climate change science in Antarctica, the content will cover why Antarctica’s geological setting makes certain parts of the continent more vulnerable to warming. It will give an explanation of how scientists derive past climate information from ice cores, and explore current research into ice shelf dynamics.
