Join us as we tell you a Song of Ice and Fire... but hopefully with less disappointment at the ending. Our speakers will tell you about their experiences in the coldest and hottest places on the planet, how they have managed to come back in one piece and what they have learned from being there.

A journey to Antarctica: the science of cold

Sarah Wauthy

PhD candidate

Get ready for a ride in the coolest place on Earth! During this presentation Sarah Wauthy will tell you everything about her mission in Antarctica, how she survives in the biggest freezer of our planet, what measurements she makes there and especially what scientific information these measurements can give on the future contribution of Antarctica to the sea level rise. So, dress warmly and let’s go to Antarctica!

Living in the shadow of an active volcano

Matthieu Kervyn De Meerendre

Professor

Over 800 million people live under the threat of a volcanic eruption. Volcanologists document past eruptive activity to produce scenarios of future eruptions, model areas most at risk and inform exposed populations. People living on volcanoes however have their own understanding of the volcano and perception of the risk. When the lava flow is coming, there is a need to take rapid decision: to go or not to go? Using lessons from the 2021 Nyiragongo eruption in DR.Congo, this talk will illustrate the potential of volcanology to understand volcanic risk and the importance of inhabitants’ risk experience for efficient eruption management
