Cape Farwell - Art and Science in the Artic

Simon Boxall (Principal Teaching Fellow, Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton)
In 2002 David Buckland (artist and wildlife photographer) got together with Oceanographer Simon Boxall to set up a programme called Cape Farewell. The objective was to look at how the Arctic is the planet’s barometer on climate change and for the debate to be about culture and climate change. Bringing together artists, musicians, comedians, and authors 6 expeditions have taken place to highlight and study the changes that have occurred since that date. The talk will bring together these events with the latest data on the state of the Arctic today.
