Time travelling to climates of the past

Saturday, 9 March, 2013 - 14:00 to 16:00

For predictions of future climate change we need to know how climate changed in the past. Join environmental scientists Mark Hodson and Emma Versteegh as they show how we can use stalagmites from caves, corals, shellfish and even earthworm poo as time machines to take the temperature of the planet long ago. Then have a look in the actual laboratories that time travelling scientists use.
