And please feel free to volunteer to give a future seminar – just drop me an email: don’t be shy – both full length and shorter slots are available late September and beyond…!" alt="?" data-goomoji="1f60a" data-image-whitelisted />

Please register in advance for the seminars - if you have already registered you should be able to use the same link as last week (check and if it doesn't work, just re-register). Once you have registered please check the link (you should see the waiting room I think). Any issues drop me an email and I'll try and help. There's a short question to answer - please tell me enough to accept you! I'll be doing that manually, so just be kind and make it obvious... (I'm a PhD student with X... or whatever). Using your work email would make my life really easy.">

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the seminar.

Seminar times:


London - 9pm

Europe - 10pm

East Coast US - 4pm

West Coast US - 1pm

Delhi (+1) - 1.30am (sorry!)

The seminar will also be available afterwards on the Friends of the International Glaciological Society Facebook page so that you can watch it there if technology fails or you can't make it! We are investigating other platforms for those in countries where Facebook can’t be used.

Hope to see you on Wednesday!
