The Desert Biome
Video shows sand dunes that can be at tall as 300 meters high. The main body of the dunes may not have shifted for 500 years. They show outcrops, rocks that are being beaten by the blowing sand, these sculptures are located in a sea of sand. Video shows a once continuous plateau that has been blasted away by the wind. This video shows how the wind affects the landscape in many ways. Really good quality video with awesome pictures of sculpt
A Law of Crisis or A Crisis of Law? The EU Legal Order Under Stress [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Neil Walker | The EU’s early success owed much to the law’s understated role as the motor of integration, but a more emphatic legal approach to the recent European crisis has been less successful. What does this mean for the future of European law, and the EU itself? Neil Walker holds the Regius Chair of Public Law and the Law of Nature and Nations at the University of Edinburgh.

Responding to Water Scarcity
Growers in the UK are having to get used to managing with less water. Changing climate patterns mean that techniques long established in Southern Europe are now being adapted for use further north. Dr Jim Monaghan (Harper Adams University College) is leading research at Warwick HRI on Dynamic Fertigation, an irrigation system that not only saves water and fertilizer but also automatically respond to five day weather forecasts. Length: 15 minutes
Observing climate change effects using the Earth’s gravity field
The Earth's gravity field varies from place to place and from one day to the next. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) is a revolutionary satellite system that allows scientists to use gravity changes to observe critical rates of ice mass loss in Antarctica and Greenland. It can also show changes in the water storage in river drainage basins such as the Murray-Darling Basin. This talk will provide an overview of these results as well as outline NASA's plans for the next such miss

Humanitarian Assistance – A Dangerous Challenge
The phrase ‘May you live in interesting times’ can be interpreted equally as a blessing or a curse. When directed at a prospective humanitarian aid volunteer, eager to embark on an overseas aid mission in the new millennium, the phrase leans increasingly towards the latter. The climate of relative safety enjoyed by humanitarian volunteers has disappeared, largely due to the radical restructuring of the world political scene in the last quarter of the 20th century. This talk will explai
