Social Media for Science Outreach – A Case Study: | Science 2.0 news |

Dr Bethan Davies is currently a post-doctoral research associate at the Centre for Glaciology, Aberystwyth University in Wales, UK. She is also currently a SCAR (Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research) Visiting Fellow at to the Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington, in New Zealand. Bethan researches the response of glaciers and ice caps in the Antarctic Peninsula to climate change at a variety of timescales. She reconstructs the extent of former glaciers by analysing their ancient geomorphological imprint on the landscape, and combines this with studies of more recent change, observed from satellite images over the last 40 years. Bethan also uses computer mathematical ice sheet models to attempt to understand the climatic driving forces behind the glacier fluctuations that she has observed. Bethan started blogging about her fieldwork and research in July 2012 on the website “”, as part of an on-going commitment to outreach and education. (...) - by SpotOn Editor on 22 May, 2013
