Earth/Geology

Curious about the planet we live on, how it has evolved, how we exploit it and how it affects our lives?
Our group looks at many aspects of earth sciences by way of talks and field excursions in ways that can be easily understood by those with only a passing interest in the subject.
We have a wide range of topics and outings and draw on expertise both from within the group and occasionally from outside.
