Mapping the Glacial Landscape of Mid-Northumberland

Friday 27 October, 19:00.  Newcastle University – Ridley Building, Lecture Hall RIDB2.1.65

This talk by Derek Teasdale, Section Lead for the Society’s Geology Section, introduces the Last Ice Age in Northumberland, and presents new research on the landforms left by ice as it retreated some 16,000-14,000 years ago. Recently released, publicly available height data for the UK has provided radically new ways to map and interrogate the landscape around us. The resulting maps are both informative and beautiful.
