Fieldtrip

Staff from the University of Hull will be running a field trip to the Yorkshire coastline on the 6th of Jan 2020

This field trip will take in the geological features of the Yorkshire coastline from Fraisthorp to Flamborough. The trip members will get to see beautiful examples of glaciotectonics showing thrusting, folding and piggybacking in tills and lacustrine sediments. The delegates will then be taken so see the spectacularly deformed chalks of the Flamborogh Head Fault zone – a little bit of the Alps in England.
