Geology of the Devon Coast (Exeter Branch)

Thu. 24 February 2022 at 2:30 pm

To be held by Zoom video conferencing.

An illustrated talk to be given by Professor Malcolm Hart.

Professor Hart’s popularised talk on the importance of Devon’s geology will include historical sketches of the most significant geological characters involved in its interpretation; the recognition and importance of the Devonian System; and how the idea of founding the DA came to William Pengelly during a casual geological excursion in Plymouth in 1861.

Malcolm will also describe how recent initiatives – such as the English Riviera Geopark in Torbay and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site – have increased the public appreciation of Devon’s geological inheritance and the need to protect vulnerable areas in the face of climate change.
