Join Jon Shanklin, one of the trio from British Antarctic Survey who made the discovery of the ozone hole in 1985 to find out how it led to a global ban on harmful-ozone depleting substances - and hear from Professor John Pyle about his award-winning research into ozone depletion today. Is the hole healing? Are we safe from harmful UV rays? This event celebrates 'The International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer' marking the 30th anniversary of the discovery of the ozone hole.
The talk is scheduled from 6:00pm - 7.30pm with the opportunity for a short tour of The Polar Museum afterwards. Refreshments will be available to purchase before and after the talk.
This is part of the Green Museums project across the University of Cambridge Museums.
