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.
