This introductory level course, suitable for all, will examine the causes and consequences of the rapid climate swings which have characterised the last two million years of Earth’s history, and which
continue to this day. Every one hundred thousand years or so, massive ice sheets have expanded from the poles and swamped the North East. The evidence of their passage is all around us – come along and find out how to recognise it. This ten week course will include three full-day excursions and is given
by Derek Teasdale, whose own specialism is glacial geology.
