Dr Steve Rintoul, who was awarded the 2012 Muse Prize for his work on Southern Ocean circulation, will give the 2015 S.T. Lee Lecture in Antarctic Studies at the Victoria University of Wellington on Tuesday 15 September.
The S.T. Lee Lecture in Antarctic Studies was established by Singaporean philanthropist Lee Seng Tee. This high-profile lecture series, held annually, is designed to recognise and bolster the University's strong contribution to Antarctic research. Previous lecturers include Muse Prize Fellows Prof Steven Chown and Prof Martin Siegert.
Dr Rintoul's lecture is entitled “The Fate of the Antarctic Ice Sheet: Lessons from the geological past and how they are informing future predictions”. More information on the lecture is available from the S.T. Lee Lecture website.
