About this Event

The field trip exploits a virtual geological landscape built in a ‘game engine’ environment, with critical localities added via 3D photogrammetry for enhanced resolution. The trip will be presented on-line via Zoom, although individual access is also possible, with all files and instructions available for personal download ahead of the field trip. The trip will be led by Geoff Lloyd (Leeds), with technical assistance from the Leeds Virtual Landscapes team (Ben Craven, Clare Gordon, Jacqui Houghton and Dan Morgan). The principal aim of the trip is to observe and discuss classic examples of outcrop-scale structures developed in low-grade metasedimentary lithologies and their relevance for understanding the evolution of the regional scale Rhoscolyn Anticline. In addition, it provides an opportunity to discuss the role of virtual geology in both research and teaching, using this classic location for student field trips as a basis.
