We are a group of people who are interested in geology and the earth sciences and who want to learn more about the subject. The Group meets monthly and relies on members volunteering to lead sessions on a topic that particularly interests them, plus some outside speakers. In addition we aim to organise some field trips. People who are new to the subject are welcomed, however it is not a course, so some rudimentary knowledge of geology will be assumed. Two very useful, easy to read and low cost books are: 'Geology' by J. Zalaiewicz in the OUP Very Short Introduction series and 'Geology' by D A Rothery in the Teach Yourself series. PLEASE NOTE: Group members will need access to the internet.
