Description

Royal Society of New Zealand Te Apārangi

Public Lecture

Dr Helen Czerski

British physicist, oceanographer, broadcaster and author of Storm in a Teacup – The Physics of Everyday Life (2016)

Bubbles: The Bath and Beyond

Bubbles are a fascinating and important part of our everyday world, they’re everywhere – not just when you do the dishes or have a bath. However, what do bubbles do and why are they important? It’s not all obvious – snails blow bubbles to float, penguins use them to go faster and there is a precise technical reason as to why bubbles are a champagne connoisseur’s best friend. Dr Helen Czerski’s own research is on the formation and structure of bubbles made by breaking ocean waves, as well as the impact these bubbles have on weather and climate. So how does one even go about studying such fleeting phenomena?

Dr Helen Czerski appears in conjunction with the Cosmic Shambles LIVE tour and is presented in partnership with Trunkman Productions (UK), Atheist Foundation of Australia Inc, Cerebral Events (NZ) and the MacDiarmid Institute.
