John Gamble is Professor in Geology at UCC since 2002.
'This exhibition is compiled from my 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.'

He has published more than 100 scientific papers and has the rare distinction of having three terrestrial landmarks named in his honour – Gamble Glacier and Gamble Cone in Antarctica and the Gamble Volcanic Complex a submarine volcano on the Tonga – Kermadec Island Arc in the SW Pacific.
