Course – Saltmarshes: geology and evolution

This course of lectures and fieldwork covers the history and evolution of estuarine marshes, and the sea level rise induced changes in sedimentary environments from drowned fossil forests to saltings over the last 5,000 years at Erith marshes.

We will also visit Greenland Quarry to examine estuarine changes during the course of the Purfleet interglacial (300,000bp). This course complements the course 'Saltmarshes: Ecology and Botany' which runs 12 August 2017. Attendance on both courses is not essential. 

Please bring a packed lunch.
