Monday 17th April

At the last meeting Prof. Paul Leonard took us through many of the projects he has been involved with in relation to his work as advisor to the government and to various industries. The work was wide ranging from the nuclear industry to dredging and the marine environment. It was a highly interesting talk and gave us insight into a world few of us know.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 19th April when artist Sue Purcell will give us another of her popular talks linking art and geology. This year her talk is entitled: Rocks and Minerals in Art: an illustrated talk with drawings and paintings. An example of her work can be seen below.
