What fate for the Antarctic ice sheet?
Antarctica is a distant, unfamiliar place. We hear of ice shelves collapsing, giant icebergs breaking away, glaciers crumbling: but how much we do know about the fate of this great ice sheet? Tamsin will talk about her research in quantifying uncertainty in Antarctic ice sheet projections and how this has been used in evidence reviews for policymakers such as the IPCC assessment reports.
Dr Tamsin Edwards is a climate scientist specialising in quantifying the uncertainties of climate model predictions, particularly for the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheet contributions to sea-level rise. She is a Lead Author of the forthcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (to be published in 2021) and a Contributing Author to the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (2019). Tamsin regularly advises the UK Government on sea-level rise, climate science and science communication, and provides expert comment to international media and business. She is an award-winning communicator, including through Twitter (@flimsin), her blog for the Public Library of Science, PLoS (All Models Are Wrong) and articles for the Guardian.
