Malmesbury School invites you to a Presentation on
"Exploring the Seven Seas: Tsunamis, Whales and Icebergs"
on Monday 14th January 2013 at 6.30 pm
by Dr Philippe Blondel
As part of our series of ‘House lectures’ we are delighted that Dr Philippe Blondel a senior lecturer at University of Bath is coming to Malmesbury School to talk about "Exploring the Seven Seas: Tsunamis, Whales and Icebergs" on Monday 14th January 2013 at 6.30pm
Dr Philippe Blondel is a Senior Lecturer at University of Bath. His research focuses on the physical understanding of acoustic remote sensing and its uses in underwater environments.
Oceans cover most of the Earth. The last decades have seen a host of wonderful discoveries most of them using sound and sonars. Examples from around the world will be taken from the presenter’s own research. The first part of the talk will present the innovative sensors which have revolutionised our knowledge of the “Blue Planet” and its sea-beds from mid-ocean ridges to coastal areas.
The second part will focus on applications, including the understanding of past tsunamis (and when they might happen again), marine habitats and the migrations of grey whales, as well as the role of acoustic sensors in monitoring the effects of climate change and human activities as far as the Arctic.
If you would like to join us for this interesting presentation please contact our Finance Office on 01666 829700 to reserve your free tickets. The evening will commence with light refreshments provided at 6.30 pm followed by the presentation at 7.00 pm with an opportunity for questions afterwards.
