City Recital Hall and Inspiring Australia invite you to explore music on a different level in our free lunchtime series This Sounds Like Science.

Join scientist, explorer, and author Professor Chris Turney for a fascinating journey through environmental change at the ends of the Earth. Chris is on a quest to understand how past climates inform what we know about future change. Working across the planet (from Antarctica to the tropics and up into the Arctic), he develops new records of past climate that extend historical weather records over millennia, improving our understanding of future abrupt climate change in Australia and globally.

Australian Earth scientist Chris Turney has written four books to critical acclaim—Shackled: How a Scientific Expedition to Antarctica Became a Fight for Survival; 1912: The Year the World Discovered Antarctica; Bones, Rocks and Stars: The Science of When Things Happened; and Ice, Mud and Blood: The Science of When Things Happened. With over 200 scientific papers on environmental change, Chris has received numerous awards for his research including the first International Union for Quaternary Science's Sir Nicholas Shackleton Medal for pioneering research into climate change (2007), the Geological Society of London’s Bigsby Medal (2009) and the Australian Academy of Science’s Frederick White Prize (2014).

Chris is passionate about science communication, contributing to The New York Times, The Times and New Scientist, and has an international following on social media as Intrepid Science. He is currently a Professor of Climate Change and Earth Science at the University of New South Wales.

This Sounds Like Science is supported by and co-curated with Inspiring Australia, the national strategy for public engagement with the sciences.
