Will uncorking become a lost custom? Innovation and tradition in wine bottle closures

This webinar has been broadcast.
A recording is now available on-demand.
Presented by Prof Andrew Waterhouse Viticulture and Enology
Andrew moved to the Department of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis in 1991 where his research program has delved into various aspects of phenolics.

Is uncorking headed for the dustbin? Will we lose the pop of opening a bottle? Prof Andrew Waterhouse, UC Davis, will reveal the differences in wine bottle closures and discuss new closures coming into the market. How do natural corks differ from synthetics and screw caps? What new technology is used to study closures? Can you age wine under a screwcap? These and other questions will be addressed.

Understanding Global Warming from First Principles

This webinar has been broadcast.
A recording is now available on-demand.
Presented by Michael de Podesta
Michael de Podesta studied Physics at Sussex University, receiving his B.Sc. in 1981 and was awarded a D.Phil. in 1985. After postdoctoral work at Bristol University he was appointed a lecturer at the University of London in 1987 and joined NPL in 2000. Since then he has specialised in temperature measurements of all kinds and has recently completed the most accurate measurement of temperature in history. Michael is a chartered physicist, a member of the Institute of Physics and in 2009 he was awarded an MBE for Services to Science.

The webinar begins by asking the question “Why is the Earth’s surface the temperature it is?”. The answer to this question is not contentious but is often not fully appreciated. This understanding then forms the basis of an analysis of why scientists are concerned that human emissions of carbon dioxide are causing Global Warming.
