The geodiversity of Northern Ireland: the greatest story of our time

Tuesday 25 January 2022 - 25/01/22

Online

About this event

Northern Ireland for its size is one of the most geologically diverse places on Earth so it is perhaps not surprising to hear that this remarkable geodiversity has played a key role in shaping the very fabric of our daily lives. Geodiversity has not only shaped the natural and built environment, but its influence on our historical and cultural heritage, biodiversity, and its positive impacts on the economy and the environment as well as on our health and well–being means that it provides essential benefits for society.

Join Dr Mark Cooper, Chief Geologist with the Geological Survey for Northern Ireland as he explores this vast geodiversity, in an exciting public lecture that will take you on a journey through geological time. Mark will tell a story that covers nearly 1 billion years of Earth history beginning deep in the southern hemisphere before slowly moving northwards over time to the current position on the globe. It will include a vast array of environments and climates, with dramatic sea–level changes, erosion and deposition, changing continents and oceans, mountain building, volcanic activity and icy wastelands, all of which make up the pages of this long and multifaceted story book that has led to the diversity of Northern Ireland’s landscapes.

This event is part of a series to promote Northern Ireland’s Geodiversity Charter.
