Where does river water go when it enters the ocean? And what does this have to do with plastic pollution and climate change? Tom Crawford explains how mathematical models are an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to understanding and saving our planet. Plus, hear the story of how Tom ended up sailing around Antarctica for 6 weeks in the name of maths...

This interactive talk will feature several audience polls, and the opportunity for volunteers to join Tom on stage to carry out some live experiments!

Tom Crawford - is a maths tutor at the University of Oxford with a mission to share his love of maths with the world through his award-winning website tomrocksmaths.com.
