Expand Your Mind – Science in Antarctica

Warrnambool Library

Have you ever wondered what it is like to live and work in Antarctica? Dr Patricia Corbett has had the enviable opportunity to go 3 times as a Marine Scientist to assess contamination impact. Antarctica is often perceived to be the last remaining pristine environment on Earth, however there are areas of localised pollution adjacent to Antarctic field stations. In some cases, these areas are as contaminated as some of the most polluted bays in the world.

Come along to hear about her research using marine fish and shellfish to assess the impact from the Australian Antarctic Station.
