IGS Global Seminar Series

Wednesday Aug 26th  (+1 in NZ / Australia / Japan)

Heather Purdie, Canterbury University, NZ,

"Morphological changes to the terminus of a maritime glacier during advance and retreat phases: Fox Glacier/Te Moeka o Tūawe, New Zealand"


Please check your link beforehand and drop me an email if you can’t see the waiting room – I’ve just created a whole load of new seminar slots on zoom. If you have any issues getting onto the seminar link please email me and I will trigger zoom to send you your link again.

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 November / December and beyond…! For short slots – contact Rebecca Schlegel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) who is co-ordinating those. We’d especially like to encourage speakers to volunteer or be suggested from communities that have so far been under-represented in the series. ?

Please register in advance for the seminars. 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!)

Tokyo (+1) - 5am

Australia (+1) - 6am

New Zealand (+1) - 8am

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.
