John Gamble is Professor in Geology at UCC.  A graduate of Queen’s University, Belfast, John returned to Ireland after 28 years in Australia and New Zealand.  His research interests lie in the geochemistry of the deep Earth and in the processes that lead to volcanism at the surface.  

These images are from an exhibition compiled from his collection of photographs taken throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s while on fieldwork in Antarctica. It includes images of volcanoes, life in the field, shots of wildlife and a visit to the historic huts of Scott and Shackleton on Ross Island, that were the staging posts for historic exploration of the continent at the beginning of the 20th century.
