Geology 2

Geology 2 is a new course beginning in January 2020.

The Geology 2 syllabus will start by going right back to basics: plate tectonics, the three major classes of rocks, the rock cycle and geological history of our region. It's intended to provide a background for those who joined Geology after the basics were done; as a revision opportunity for anybody who wants it; and as an introduction for newcomers.

15 January 2020 TBA
12 February 2020 TBA
11 March 2020 TBA
8 April 2020 TBA
