The value of maths in climate research

Posted on: Fri 11 Dec 2020

Climate activists can come in all shapes and sizes.

They are the people composting, they are the people riding their bikes to work, but what about the mathematicians?

Using applied mathematics to investigate the impacts of climate change on polar ice shelves, and other geophysical problems, has sparked national recognition for Associate Professor Luke Bennetts, Future Fellow from the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Adelaide.

Luke joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss his award-winning research.
