|Meeting||Training Room at Thorntree Hall, Thornliebank|
|Time||4th Wednesday of the month at 10.30am to 12.30pm,|
Next meeting: Meetings are cancelled until further notice because of the Covid-19 virus outbreak. However, to keep things ticking over Colin aims to continue monthly online geological quizzes about the time the group would have been meeting, and which you can do at your leisure. He will send what he thinks are the answers (they could have errors. You tell him!) about a week later to download when you are ready.
As soon as we are able to get things running again the plan is to restart with the activity detailed for that month and reschedule the missed meetings for next year.
Geology is defined as ‘the study of the structure, evolution and dynamics of the Earth and its natural mineral and energy resources and investigates the processes that have shaped the Earth through its 4500 million year history.’
Are you interested in the structure of rocks and minerals and how they were formed? Earth processes such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes? The history of the Earth’s structure and how it is still changing? Why Mount Everest is growing by about 4mm per year?
At the meetings there are discussions, talks and sometimes field trips, which are undertaken at your own risk. No previous knowledge is required to join the group just an interest. If you would like more information or to join the group please contact Colin by clicking on the Message Bird.
