RGSC: The Ice Age in Cornwall: new perspectives on old problems. Professor James Scourse.

RGSC Ice Age in Cornwall poster

The Ice Age in Cornwall: new perspectives on old problems. Professor James Scourse, Centre for Geography and Environmental Science, University of Exeter (Penryn). (Rescheduled from January)

The recently completed 6-year BRITICE-CHRONO NERC Large Grant has reconstructed in great detail the Last British-Irish Ice Sheet. Highlights in our region include new extensive offshore ice limits, very tight constraints on the timing and extent of the glaciation on Scilly but brought into sharper focus some longstanding problems, such as where was the ice limit offshore north Cornwall, or was north Cornwall glaciated after all?
