Two lectures:

A talk by Professor Richard Chiverell (University of Liverpool): New insights to the British Ice Sheet Date: 20th June 2019 Time: 18:00 - 19:30 Venue: University of Liverpool, Rendall Building, Lecture Theatre 6 Abstract: Over the last six-years, the BRITICE-CHRONO consortium has established the timing and pace of retreat displayed by the last British- Irish Ice Sheet using a systematic dating of glacial sediments and landforms. More than 600 new ages measured by radiocarbon, luminescence and cosmogenic methods have refined understanding of ice retreat for eight key transects aligned down major former ice streams and outlet glaciers often extending from the continental shelf break to onshore. This talk will explore the pace of retreat for the whole ice-sheet, with a more detailed focus on past environments in the northwest of England to provide an understanding of ice sheet dynamics and associated controls for the period 28,000 – 15,000 years ago. The lecture is free - but please register via: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/geography-and-planning/events/roxby- lectures/ A talk by LGS President - Professor Jim Marshall: Fault Lines and the Wirral Date: Monday 1st July 2019 Time: 19:30 Venue: Greasby Library, 132 Greasby Rd, Greasby, Wirral CH49 3AT Abstract: Deep-seated geological fault lines play a major role in shaping our local landscape. These structures formed hundreds of millions of years ago. By influencing later deserts, rivers, glaciers and the sea they continue to affect our open spaces, soils, agriculture, industry and even house prices! Admission - £ 2 on the night to the Friends of Greasby Library (unless you are a member of FoGL).
