The annual University of Plymouth Centre for Research in Earth Sciences (CRES) conference showcases the latest research of our postgraduates, postdoctoral researchers and academic staff within Earth Sciences. As part of the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences, our researchers draw on a broad range of expertise to address key Earth science issues that are of broad concern to society. 

This event is open to all University staff, students and the general public.

The keynote speaker this year is Dr Dan Condon from the British Geological Survey, who is the Science Director for the Geochronology and Tracers Facility. Dan’s research uses geochronology to improve our understanding of key events in Earth history and his research has taken him all around the world from Greenland to China. He has published across the spectrum of Earth sciences from Holocene methane seeps to the Great Oxidation Event 2.5 billion years ago.

Dan will deliver a keynote talk entitled 'The Dating Game: Adventures in Geochronology' and will explore how geochronology underpins a broad range of Earth system science.

Alongside our internationally recognised keynote speakers, presentations and posters from our University of Plymouth researchers will reflect the exciting variety of research undertaken within SoGEES. After the event, please stick around for our social gathering and photo competition.

All attendees are greatly encouraged to bring their Geo-themed bakes to show off and share during coffee breaks!
