Saturday 9 October 2021, 2.00PM to 5.00pm
Speaker(s): Liam Herringshaw BSc PhD
Maps are wonderful things, and geological maps especially so. Rather than simply telling us what is on the Earth's surface, they are predictive, scientific publications, assessing what lies beneath. In this introductory course, geologist Liam Herringshaw will introduce some of the different types of geological map, how they are produced, and how to read them. A familiarity with maps is expected, but no geological qualifications are required.
This course will be delivered via Zoom. Students joining the course will need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone (essential) and a webcam (desirable) as well as a reliable broadband connection.
