Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Sea ice, ice shelves and the ocean

Presented by Professor Pat Langhorne, Department of Physics

Professor Langhorne has been fascinated by the polar regions since her teenage years. After undergraduate physics at the University of Aberdeen (in Scotland), she completed a PhD on sea ice at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, England. In 1985 Langhorne was invited to take part in an Antarctic experiment bringing her to New Zealand for the first time, and since 1988 has been teaching physics and researching sea ice physical processes at the University of Otago. Working with postgraduate students and with national and international collaborators, Prof Langhorn has taken part in about twenty research visits to Antarctica.
