Join 'Taking the Pulse of Planet Earth' as part of the Pint of Science programme, a series of informal lectures in pubs around Leeds.
Our planet is vast, diverse, and rapidly changing. Now more than ever we need innovative approaches to take the pulse of Planet Earth. But how do we keep track of what is going on in Earth's most remote and extreme environments? And how do we make sense of these measurements once we have them? Tonight, we explore the challenges and need for remote sensing of our environment. Join us to find out how we should really measure earthquake magnitude and behaviour as well as how the reflectivity of icesheets impacts our changing planet.
