This is part of its efforts to popularize science to the General Public and Students who are pursuing science as their career. TNSF attempt to focus on students on higher science as everyone knows that learning of science at college within the curriculum is not enough to acquire holistic knowledge of science at the appropriate time. Hence, to fill the gap between what students are acquiring through the curriculum and what it is required, TNSF is planning its activities on higher science to students who are pursuing higher education.
The ice on earth, the cryosphere, is inextricably tied up with the climate of the earth. It affects and is affected by life on earth. This talk is an attempt to argue why this is so ? How does the climate affect the ice and why does the ice affect the climate ? What caused the ice ages ? How did they affect the sea level ? Why is this interplay of great concern today ? What is the evidence that the climate is changing at an "unnaturally" fast rate today ? Closer home, what is the role of the ice in the Himalaya in the water cycle ? How will the current rapid rate of climate change affect the flow of the rivers of North India ? How will it affect the sea level ?
