The Great Climate Change Jigsaw goes to Greenman!

Staff and Ph.D. students from Swansea University's Departments of Geography and Physics and Swansea University Outreach Fellow Lizzie Daly were at this year’s Greenman Festival's Einstein's Garden from August 15th to 19th with the 'Great Climate Change Jigsaw'.

Created by Swansea Geographer Professor Danny McCarroll, as part of the NERC and Royal Meteorological Society funded UK Oak project (OAK-RESEARCH.CO.UK) the Great Climate Change Jigsaw will give visitors to Einstein's Garden a giant hands-on introduction to how Britain's summers have changed over the last 800 years. All based on the information stored in ancient Britain oak tree rings.

Talking about the event Professor Danny McCarroll explains the jigsaw:

The jigsaw is used to start conversations about climate science and how we need many different bits of science, from geography to physics, to put the jigsaw of climate science together.
