The New Zealand Antarctic Society is please to announce that Peter Barrett will present the Sir Holmes Miller Memorial Lecture in 2014. Peter is an Emeritus Professor of Geology in the Antarctic Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington. His vast experience in Antarctica began in 1962 exploring the Ellsworth Mountains with a US geology team. He then went on as a US graduate student to map the geology of the Beardmore Glacier area, where he found the first tetrapod remains, getting media attention at the time for supporting the theory of continental drift. He went on to lead a series of drilling projects for understanding the younger history of Antarctica and its ice sheet. Over the years Peter has followed the impact of increased levels of carbon dioxide emissions on the Antarctic. Peter will discuss how over his 50 years of research in Antarctica it seems that our science goals have changed from exploring the earth to seeking ways of dealing with the consequences of our impact on it.
