Michael Bentley and Louise Callard from Durham University have undertaken more than 20 expeditions to the polar regions.

They'll be talking about how the new Royal Research Ship 'Sir David Attenborough' will allow researchers to better understand how ice sheets have changed over time and help them predict how the seas could rise in the future.

You'll be able to see some pictures from their expeditions, as well as hearing about geophysical research techniques.
