Allen Pope: Glaciology

Allen Pope, a PhD student from the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge, gave three lively and engaging talks on his researches into arctic and antarctic ice. He gave us a really good idea of what it was like to live and work in such conditions, and clear insights into some of the issues he’d been looking at, for example evaluating different hypotheses for some strange erosion patterns in rocks left exposed by a retreating glacier.
