What lies beneath the Ross Ice Shelf? We know it’s a floating ice shelf; it’s the size of Spain. But it’s also a blindspot in the global ocean system and one of the least understood marine environmen­ts on Earth. Some of the secrets of the Ross Ice Shelf will be revealed next week and you’ll hear all about the findings of a four-year aerial survey, which used radar to penetrate beneath the ice. The free event, organised by Auckland Antarctic Science Meet-up, is another in their popular Antarctic science talks for grown-ups and kids.

Monday, July 22, 6pm -7.30pm Macgregor Room, School of Biological Sciences, Level One, Old Biology Building, University of Auckland, 5 Symonds St, Auckland.
