Geology


We are using all sorts of media to learn about this: books and articles in their traditional form,  DVD’s, and the internet, and often end up teaching each other. We all know a little about this fascinating subject, and want to know more. At a later date, we hope to arrange visits to the Jurassic Coast and other sites.

 

At present, we are meeting in each others’ homes, but if more people show an interest in joining this group we could always move to a public venue such as the Parish Centre in Blandford.


What we do: Study of rocks and earth processes: How rocks are formed; how they weather; movement of tectonic plates; examining samples of rocks and minerals.
