Earth Sciences Newsletter Autumn 2021

Message from Prof Paul Upchurch, HoD: Despite the never-ending challenges of Covid, the Department has had a productive and successful 1st term. Our fieldwork is back!  I know that both staff and students enjoyed the opportunity to see real rock outcrops and fossils up close. We have offered a blended approach to learning, with much of our lecture material being provided online, but with practicals & labs being taught face to face.
