Cork Geological Association lecture: The Geology of Cold Water Corals

September 28 @ 7:30 pm

Cork Geological Association Lecture 7:30 at UCC and online:

Prof. Andy Wheeler, Head of Geology, School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, UCC, will give a talk entitled:

The Geology of Cold Water Corals.

When we find corals in the ancient rock record, we have assumed the environment was warm, even equatorial. Researchers in UCC have discovered coral thriving in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on the sea-floor off the Irish coast. Investigation of these corals, and drilling into the rock record beneath, is helping to re-interpret past environments.

Andy will bring us up-to-date on the latest research and its significance. This event will be held in the

Ted Nevill Lab, Enterprise Centre, North Mall campus, UCC.

All are welcome.

We hope that you will be able to attend in person. If you cannot attend in person but would like to attend online, please register to receive the link by emailing b.higgs@ucc.ie .
