Cambridge University glaciologist Professor Julian Dowdeswell has spent three years of his life in the Polar Regions.

As Director of the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge, this film follows him to Greenland and the Antarctic as his research reveals the challenges we all face from climate change.

He uses a radar system developed by Cambridge University to measure changes in the thickness and volume of glaciers and explains how an increase in sea levels as a result of melting ice will have serious implications for us all.
