QRA Annual Discussion Meeting 2017

9:00am to 5:00pm, Collingwood College

The theme of this ADM arose from the recent development and completion of a guide to engineering geology in glaciated and periglaciated terrains, undertaken by a working party of geologists and geographers under the auspices of the Geological Society and aimed at developing inter-disciplinary collaboration amongst those with expertise in Quaternary science. The meeting aims to bring together a broad range of academics from the earth sciences and geography and practising engineering geologists working in Quaternary cold climate landscapes in an attempt to communicate recent developments and professional practices across the various disciplines working in Quaternary science more generally. The hope is that this will enable the improved awareness of practices and knowledge across bodies of expertise and initiate future collaboration specifically between the QRA and the engineering geology community.
