It was the weather

Everyone has heard of Scott of the Antarctic, but do they know the whole story? In a lecture at the University, Dr Susan Solomon brings a scientific perspective to understanding the men of the expedition, their staggering struggle, and the reasons for their deaths. Drawing on meteorological data and her personal experience of the Antarctic, she argues that Scott's party was struck down by exceptionally cold temperatures which thwarted their meticulous predictions. Signed copies of her new book on the subject, The Coldest March, will be available at the lecture.

Dr Solomon received the United States' highest scientific honour, the National Medal of Science, for her ground-breaking research into the Antarctic ozone hole.

The lecture is at 6.15 pm on October 3 at the Yorkshire Bank lecture theatre, Leeds Business School. See Events for further details.
