Studying Rocks, Minerals and Fossils from Pangaea to the Polden Hills
|Venue||varies Not currently meeting face-to-face|
The group hopes to maintain its studies and interest in the study of Geology during the Winter months by holding meetings on Zoom.
Whilst studying the basics of Geology (rocks/minerals) and Palaeontology (fossils), we try to put the theory into context by looking at the effects on our local landscape, buildings and industry.
The monthly meetings are a combination of audio/video lectures, short presentations by members and general discussion, with museum visits and field trips between meetings to give everyone a feel for the rocks and processes beneath our feet and around us, as well as our own impact on planet Earth. We use the DVD lecture series entitled The Nature of Earth: An Introduction to Geology as the basis of our studies, watching one lecture per month.
