Events for 2018  
20th April Spring Meeting and AGM
The South Georgia Association Spring Meeting and AGM will be held at the Royal Overseas League. The meeting will start with a reception followed by the AGM and a talk by Dr Mark Brandon, Reader in Polar Oceanography, The Open University - "Giant Icebergs and South Georgia".

In recent decades several giant icebergs have passed close by South Georgia, the most recent being a remnant of B09 that calved from the Ross Ice Shelf in 1987. Oceanographic data show the impact of the berg's local melt and how regional waters were affected.
