We’re dedicated to improving public and student understanding of our planet and Earth Sciences, as well as sharing our enthusiasm for the world around us.
We have created a 'Tools for Schools' micro site which we hope will prove useful for teaching of the A-level syllabus in Physical Geography.
We have started by looking at the water-cycle, the carbon-cycle and a simple climate-change prediction model; topics which are core to the A-level specification for Geography in England. Further topics will be added in due course.

Visiting your school
We’re happy to give talks on any of the hot topics in Earth Sciences.
Email Prof Dave Waltham/Dr Amy Gough to arrange a talk.
