2071 is a Royal Court play with Prof Chris Rapley, our climate scientist who is presenting his position on climate change. Together with playwright Duncan Macmillian, Chris has created a 70-minute play. He is the co-writer and performer delivering emotion-free, full of sobering facts monologue.
This committee was created to address the issue of promoting and advising on the creation of a Science-led One ESA. The committee identified four grand sciences themes: Terrestrial and Cosmic Climate; Understanding Gravity, Life in the Universe and the Cosmic Radiation and Magnetism. More...
Rock & Ice Physics Laboratory
Shackleton Ice Shelf is an extensive ice shelf fronting the coast of East Antarctica for about 384 km (95E to 105E), projecting seaward about 145 km in the western portion and 64 km in the east
The Rock Physics Laboratory
Mount St. Helens is an active stratovolcano located in Skamania County, Washington, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.
Experimental & theoretical rock physics, ice mechanics & petrologyapplied to planetary dynamics, geohazards, sub-surface reservoirs & ice sheets
The Rock & Ice Physics Laboratory (RIPL) at UCL is a major research facility which forms part of the Earth Sciences Department. RIPL has over 15 members and consists of 11 laboratories, housing over £4M of research equipment., supported by over £2 million of current peer-reviewed funding. The Rock & Ice Physics Laboratory has a unique breadth of experience and ability to design and build its own experimental apparatus.
We study the physical behaviour of ice and rocks that make up the surface and interior of the Earth, and other solid bodies in the solar system, so as to constrain the dynamic, tectonic and environmental processes of planetary evolution. Our research is nationally unique and multi-disciplinary, being based on experiment and theory.
