Northumbrian Soils: Causes and Effects (Thursdays)

Course Tutor Derek Teasdale

Thursday 11 October, 10.30am – 12.30pm

Course length: 10 sessions
Course structure: 7 indoor sessions, 3 outdoor field trips

Northumbria’s varied topography, climate and especially bedrock geology help create a range of soil types, including brown soils, stagnoleys and stagnohumic gleys. These in turn influence vegetation types and the quality of habitats and farmland.

Join Derek Teasdale to discover how soils form, what they can tell us, and visit as many soil types as we can in three outdoor sessions.

Cost: £88 (concessions £72)
