Photographic Competition : Geosites and Climate Change

Local Geological Sites that Represent
an Aspect of Climate Change

Something to think about over the summer months, we believe it’s a good time to think about climate change, whether present-day or historical.

Do you have a local site that could be used to demonstrate climate change?
It could be related to present or palaeo-climate change. If you have, then enter it into our challenge, and submit to lesley.dunlop@northumbria.ac.uk
1) a good site photograph;
2) a short explanation of the climate change demonstrated;
3) a summary account about how you could use it to
explain to others, such as non-experts, about climate
change;
4) any access restrictions;
5) your group’s name and (if any) logo.
We’ll publish the results to coincide with the GCUK AGM
and feature them in the next issue of GEONEWS.
