Tim Naish is Professor in Earth Sciences at Victoria University of Wellington, and he has participated in 14 expeditions to Antarctica. He was Lead Author on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report.
In this national lecture series, Professor Naish will present two narratives on the future of Antarctica, looking forward 50 and 300 years: the first, in which greenhouse gas emissions remain unchecked; the other involving ambitious action to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
