Irena McCabe (Science and Technology Studies): Display re environmental sustainability

From an impoverished background in Ireland, Tyndall rose to eminence as a scientist of versatility and distinction. The analysis of his discovery of the greenhouse gases in this poster focuses on his commitment, his procedures, and  the interpretation of his experimental results which  bear fruit today in the foundation of Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in the year 2000 with its headquarters at the  University of East Anglia, the participation of seven other UK Universities and the Fudan University in Shanghai,  constituting the Tyndall Consortium.

In 1850 Tyndall became inspired by the  book by an Italian physicist Macedonio Melloni’s (1798-1854) “La Thermochrose” in which the author, motivated by his love of nature, pioneered experimental investigations of the thermal properties of substances in the solid and liquid phase. Tyndall boldly resolved to do the same for gases.
