The end of the Cretaceous: global and local perspectives
March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£5
Talk by Professor Andy Gale.
The Cretaceous-Paleogene unconformity in England. Uplift and erosion related to the Icelandic mantle plume.
During the late Cretaceous to early Paleogene, the present-day area of Britain and Ireland emerged from nearly total submergence by the chalk sea. What mechanism was responsible for this major marine regression?
This is the third of a series of Earth Science-based lectures organised by DGAG in collaboration with other groups.
As the Dorset County Museum is closed for refurbishment, ’til summer 2020, the lectures will take place in Committee Room 1 at County Hall. They will follow the familiar pattern of being on the second Wednesday of the month starting at 7 pm.
Parking is available behind County Hall and is free in the evening.
