Impact of Glaciation and Local Landscapes, a talk by Zoom to be given by Dr Richard Waller. 

GLACIATION AND LOCAL LANDSCAPES     Richard Waller   

 5th November at 2.15 pm  

Richard Waller’s initial interest in physical Geography was sparked off by his enjoyment of fell-walking. During his degree course he had the opportunity to spend two months in Alaska, which graphically illustrated the power of ice and led to his current specialisation in cold environments.  He is now a senior lecturer in Geography at Keele University. He runs annual student visits to observe glacial features in Norway but he also greatly values the opportunities at weekends to experience and study our local Cumbrian post-glacial environments.  As an expert speaker we can expect Richard to be both informative and lively.

ROCKS AND MINERALS: Roger Leech

Roger Leech has kindly offered to give his talk on Rocks and Minerals, originally scheduled for April this year, on THURSDAY, 15 OCTOBER AT 2.15 PM, BY ZOOM.

With a father who was an engineer, Roger’s early family experiences in Africa and elsewhere sparked his interest in rocks and minerals. His own career was as a scientist, initially focusing on micro-biology, but he has always maintained a serious fascination for geology and he has a most extensive collection and knowledge of a wide range of rocks, minerals and mining. Living in our local area has enabled Roger to develop his interest further. This promises to be an excellent, lively and well-illustrated talk with an exploration of rocks and minerals both above and below ground.
