Bubbles in liquids are a fascinating and important part of our everyday world, but we still associate them mostly with having baths.
 
However did you know that snails blow bubbles, penguins use them to go faster and that there is a precise technical reason why bubbles are a champagne connoisseur’s best friend?
 
Helen Czerski; a Research Fellow in Oceanography at UCL (University College London) and TV presenter, will explore and explain how we study bubbles in the ocean, and the difference that they make to weather and climate.
