About this event

We are hosting two talks, each followed by a Q & A session, from 18:00 - 19:00 BST

Dr Ed Tipper, University Lecturer

Questioning the magnitude of the feedback between silicate weathering and climate

Two lines of evidence cast doubt on the size of the silicate weathering feedback. The first relates to the release of carbon dioxide during the weathering of limestone, the second to the key role that fluvial sediments play in delivering solutes, and carbon, to the oceans.

Dr Alex Copley and Aisling O'Kane, Reader in Tectonics and Graduate student

How the geological history of the continents controls present-day earthquake hazard

Petrology and geophysics combine to describe how the Earth's continents form and evolve, and how these processes control the nature of destructive ground shaking in modern-day earthquakes.

Dr Nigel Woodcock, Emeritus Reader, will chair the event
