I am thrilled to have been selected to be Outreach Officer for IODP Expedition 382: Iceberg Alley and Subantarctic Ice and Ocean Dynamics

In March next year, I'll return to my beloved Antarctic in my favorite job of all, science communication and outreach, for two months at sea in the area of greatest Antarctic iceberg concentration, ICEBERG ALLEY! This is a dream come true for the second time.

Even better, our work will help us better understand how the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) may behave and how much and how fast sea levels will rise in our warming, changing world. 



I'm chuffed to be illustrating a new book by Madeleine Dunphy to be published by Web of Life Children's Books. And the subject matter is a sheer delight! Details to follow...
