Scots scientists and climate change – a crucial contribution
May 28, 2018
Meteorologist James Renwick, a climate scientist at VUW, will give an overview from his 30 years’ research in this science, weaving in some Scots’ key roles in the understanding of it e.g. origin of the ice ages (James Croll), formation of clouds (John Aitken), discovery of carbon dioxide (Joseph Black), and notably William Speirs Bruce whose Scottish National Antarctic Expedition (1902-4) established the first permanent weather station there with Victoria University of Wellington Scottish Interest Group.
