Our Collection on Art UK 

Art UK, an online resource for public art collections across the UK, now features a selection of paintings and sculptures from our collection.
Collaborating with over 3,200 British institutions, they plan to make art available for everyone.

SPRI Collections Coordinator, Alex Partridge, wrote a blog post about Art UK's visit to the Scott Polar Research Institute and how they selected which objects to include.

The first model fully coupling subglacial hydrology to plumes and submarine melting, led by SPRI PhD candidate Samuel Cook, is now available to view in Cryosphere

Samuel suggests that hydrological drainage is highly dynamic and periodically stores water, complicating the link between surface melting and submarine melting.

While we are away from the Institute, we have been sharing our favourite 'things' about the Scott Polar Research Institute.

Follow the hashtag #mySPRI on Twitter and Instagram to find out what we have been selecting and why.

Collections Assistant, Mia Surridge, chose our narwhal tusk because she enjoys 'seeing visitor’s reactions when it makes an appearance in the Polar Museum'
