Brief description

This module centres on two field courses: one normally held during the September preceding 2nd year studies, and emphasising field techniques, the other held during the Easter vacation, and aimed at broadening the student's experience of field-based issues relevant to the Environmental Earth Science course. The module includes tutorial classes, and other meetings ancillary to the fieldwork.
