Carolyn Roberts, the Frank Jackson Professor of the Environment at London's Gresham College, will give a series of six free public lectures under the collective title 'Britain in Troubled Waters'.

The aquatic-themed talks will be spread across the academic year and take in The Next Big UK Flood: Britain Under Water (12 November); The Creeping Paralysis of Drought (14 January 2016); Oil on Troubled Waters: The Industrial Legacy and Britain’s Groundwater (11 February 2016); Britain's Damaged Rivers (7 April 2016); and Development, Developers and the Water Environment (12 May 2016). Professor Roberts will start the series on 15 October with an insight into her role as a police expert witness using the science of hydrology in murder cases.

The events will be held from 6-7pm at Barnard’s Inn Hall, London, EC1, and are open to all, though particularly recommended for undergraduate and postgraduate enrichment. Seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

All lectures will be recorded and released on the Gresham College website after they have taken place.
