Iceland and the Opening of the Atlantic Ocean

Thursdays from 23rd January, 10.15am-12.15pm.

Sorry – this course is now fully booked, however we have put on an additional class on Monday afternoons (see above).

The Atlantic Ocean has been opening for some 55 million years, following a period of intense
volcanism and the extrusion of widespread flood basalts across northwest Britain. Derek Teasdale
leads this 10 week course that will explore the fascinating plate tectonic evolution of Britain and
the Atlantic Ocean. We will also take a detailed look at the unique and beautiful volcanic geology
of Iceland.
