EGS Public Lecture: Climate change in Edinburgh – Past, Present, Future

Wednesday 6 October 2021, 6.30 pm at Dynamic Earth

Our climate change lecture explored the geological aspects of climate change in the past, present and future. The panel of guest speakers considered what the sedimentary rocks of this area tell us about the climate in the geological past and evidence from Scotland’s coasts of changes over the last millennia and decades. And we looked to the future, and how geology and geological processes are at the heart of climate change adaptation and mitigation. The live, in-person audience had an opportunity to engage the speakers in questions and discussion.

This was in-person event at Dynamic Earth, with a small audience but we felt it was important to gather again. Good to be back!
