Irish Geomorphology Group Workshop

The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Group recently attended the annual Irish Geomorphology group (IGGy) Meeting in Cork.


Research group: Ciara Fleming, Mary Bourke, Ankit Verman, Niamh Cullen, Ciaran Nash and Alex Scullion (Lauren Mc Keown not in photo)

The meeting was hosted by the Geography Department at University College Cork and was attended by academics from most institutions in Ireland and some from overseas. There was a great range of presentations by all and those from our group are listed below. We were able to catch up with group members from past and present. We are as usual indebted by sponsorship of our meetings by the Geological Survey of Ireland, the Geographical Society of Ireland, the Marine Institute and UCC.

A hallmark of our workshops is the postgraduate training which once again was a huge success.
