Geology logo 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.

All the outings are undertaken at the individual member's own risk.

If you would like more information or to join the group please contact Colin by clicking on the Message Bird.
