Climate Realism: A Lukewarm Approach to Global Warming

Date
27/09/2017
Location:
G35 Chemical Engineering
Description
There are many scientific agreements and disagreements in climate science. While there is general agreement about the modern global warming trend (since 1850), scientific controversies increase as climate research moves further back in time and predictions move further into the future.

A journey through the underworld: David Chapman's Inaugural Lecture

Date
27/09/2017
Location:
G33 Mechanical & Civil Engineering Building
Description
Professor David Chapman's inaugural lecture will focus on an exciting journey into the urban underworld and reveal our hidden infrastructure contained within, including pipes and metro tunnels, and its importance to 21st century living. It will demonstrate the incredible ingenuity involved over the centuries with creating our often-undervalued subsurface world. It will also cover aspects of the amazing technologies used to create, condition monitor and renew subsurface infrastructure, and the incredible challenges faced in this uncompromising and unforgiving environment. The vital interconnectivity between our surface and subsurface infrastructure and the importance of the ground in this relationship will be demonstrated.

Quantum vortex matter: insights from computer algebra: Nicola Wilkin's Inaugural Lecture

Date
18/10/2017
Location:
Physics West 117
Description
Professor Nicola Wilkin's inaugural lecture will focus on key physical systems, one is from a superconductor (a solid material) where the cortices therein are generated by an applied magnetic field and the other vortices in ultra-cold gases where the vortices are a response to rotation that is induced by lasers. Professor will also cover the key findings that were established using computer algebra, discussing how this intermediate tool between pencil and paper and full scale simulation can be exploited.
