2020 6th Oct Dr Alan Boyle Presidential Address: Peak Minerals 13th Oct Prof Chris Hunt, Liverpool John Moores University: The Environmental Geology of Prehistoric Malta The first European civilisation arose in the Maltese Islands and lasted for more than 2000 years. How, on these arid, rocky, restricted islands, with few natural resources, did they do it - and why, eventually, did it fail? Coastal plain sequences, ancient soils and geophysics provide the evidence for how the Maltese Temple culture was born, flourished, and eventually perished. 20th Oct LGS Quiz: details to follow 27th Oct Dr David McNamara, University of Liverpool. : Geothermal Geology: Teaching a New Dog Old Tricks Dr David McNamara is a former PhD graduate of the University of Liverpool who has since built an industry and research career in the internationally growing geothermal sector. David spent over seven years working for New Zealand’s Crown Research Institute ‘GNS Science’ where he worked to adapt oil and gas techniques to geothermal application. David’s work centres on understanding the flow of geothermal fluids which includes characterising structural networks, and understanding the nucleation and growth of scaling minerals in geothermal reservoirs in New Zealand, USA, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Ireland, Uganda, Iceland and now the UK. David is now back in Liverpool as a Lecturer in the School of Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences. 3rd Nov Prof Cynthia Burek, Chester University: Lanzarote: A Geoconservation & geotourism perspective Lanzarote is a unique island recognised by UNESCO as a global Geopark and Global Biosphere. This talk will introduce the geology but also look at the contribution of one man to the geoconservation of the island and his effect on geotourism. 15th Dec LGS Christmas quiz 2021 lecture details will follow
