“The explosive history of the Galapagos Archipelago” Matthew Gleeson, PhD student, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge
The Galapagos Archipelago is one of the most volcanically active regions in the world with eruptions occurring approximately every 2-3 years. This volcanic activity is spread over a large geographical area resulting in a wide range of magmatic processes, which will be explored in this talk.
Fourth walk on the Fen Edge Trail published
The fourth walk on the Trail, from Swaffham Bulbeck to Reach, via Swaffham Prior, is now available for download from the Fen Edge Trail website. Part of our Geosites initiative, this project explores the Landscape Heritage of this important feature of Cambridgeshire. We hope to publish a further 3 walks this spring/summer.
Cambridgeshire has a fascinating landscape and an interesting geology. See our Local Landscapes page for more details and download the excellent leaflet ‘The Mapping of Landscapes, Geology and Soils of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire’ by Timothy Farewell, Peter Friend, Martin Whiteley and Joanna Zawadzk.
