The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences organises a regular series of research seminars throughout the academic year to which everyone is welcome to attend. Speakers - both external and internal to the University - will talk on topics related to all aspects of Earth Sciences.

Today's speaker is Dr Sarah Boulton, Lecturer in Neotechtonics at Plymouth University.

In this seminar Sarah will talk about her recent four month sabbatical to New Zealand. 

She will outline the background to the research, covering aspects of river response to active tectonics and cosmogenic nuclide analysis. Preliminary results from the field study area (the Kaimanawa Mountains of the North Island) show that these rivers are dynamically responding to a change in uplift rates.
