From 1st January 2017, the School of Geography & Geosciences split into two new and separate schools:

School of Earth & Environmental Sciences

School of Geography & Sustainable Development

This collection contains research that was carried out in the school prior to this split, when it was known by its previous name of the School of Geography & Geosciences.

Recent Submissions

  • Laurentia-Baltica-Amazonia relations during Rodinia assembly 

    Cawood, Peter A.; Pisarevsky, Sergei A. (2017-05) - Journal article
    Laurentia, Baltica and Amazonia are key building blocks of the end Mesoproterozoic to early Neoproterozoic supercontinent Rodinia. Integration of available data sets enables development of a dynamic model for the Proterozoic ...

    The basaltic rocks in NW Thailand belong to part of giant Southeast Asian igneous zone that delineates the extension of the Paleotethyan Ocean from SW China into NW Thailand. The Chiang Mai basaltic samples from the Chiang ...
  • Facilitating tree-ring dating of historic conifer timbers using Blue Intensity 

    Wilson, Rob; Wilson, David; Rydval, Miloš; Crone, Anne; Büntgen, Ulf; Clark, Sylvie; Ehmer, Janet; Forbes, Emma; Fuentes, Mauricio; Gunnarson, Björn E.; Linderholm, Hans W.; Nicolussi, Kurt; Wood, Cheryl Victoria; Mills, Coralie (2017-02) - Journal article
    Dendroarchaeology almost exclusively uses ring-width (RW) data for dating historical structures and artefacts. Such data can be used to date tree-ring sequences when regional climate dominates RW variability. However, the ...
  • Jurassic cooling ages in Paleozoic to early Mesozoic granitoids of northeastern Patagonia : 40Ar/39Ar, 40K–40Ar mica and U–Pb zircon evidence 

    Martínez Dopico, Carmen I.; Tohver, Eric; López de Luchi, Mónica G.; Wemmer, Klaus; Rapalini, Augusto E.; Cawood, Peter A. (2017-10) - Journal article
    U–Pb SHRIMP zircon crystallization ages and Ar–Ar and K–Ar mica cooling ages for basement rocks of the Yaminué and Nahuel Niyeu areas in northeastern Patagonia are presented. Granitoids that cover the time span from ...
  • The Parallel Roads of Glen Roy, Scotland : geoconservation history and challenges 

    Brazier, Vanessa; Gordon, John E.; Faulkner, Martin; Warner, Derrick; Hoole, Keith; Blair, Jim (2017-02) - Journal article
    Glen Roy is a classic geosite for ice-dammed lake shorelines, the Parallel Roads, and associated features formed during the Loch Lomond (Younger Dryas) Stade (12.9–11.7 ka). The area played a key part in the development ...
