On 16th October we welcomed 50 students and staff from the Department of Natural and Environmental Sciences, Newcastle University. Our contribution required five group trips into Carrs Mine and supporting the groups on surface sampling. We started the day in cloud and drizzle and ended with blue sky. It was rewarding to see so many students taking an interest in earth sciences.
Thanks to Dr Martin Cooke, Director of Postgraduate Studies and team for choosing Nenthead as a field study site and to our team of volunteers including Steve Holding, Alan Robinson, Dave McAnelly, Karen Beer, Chris Buckingham , Joyce Jackson, Gavin Stewart, Andy Hopkirk, Frank Bouweraerts, Anne Hopkirk, and Peter Jackson.
