Helmsdale blog 2015

Just before the start of their third year, our Geophysics students go on a 4-day residential geology field course in the far north-east of Scotland. The purpose of the trip is to study the sedimentary rocks of the area and to understand their relationship to the oil fields in the North Sea.

You can read lecturer Hugh Pumphrey account of this year’s trip on his own blog below. Note he took both these pictures in the same day!
