|When OUGS members go 'rocking all over the world' it is often an enriching
experience, one to be shared with others. Some like to share their riches
in written form. This could be in our newsletter, €U(RO)CK,
but it might also be elsewhere.
On this page we refer to articles not brought in our newsletter.
We start out with an article, Rolling Rocks, which is written by our coordinator, Annette Kimmich, and originally appeared in Open Eye, the supplement of the Independent Newspaper on Tuesday 6 June 2000.
In "My first field trip ..." Annette Kimmich tells how .... well, you should read it. (Field trips are fun, not completely serious all the time, and do have a very positive social side).
More from the Alps. Isa Adams joined the Alps OUGS field trip (July 2000) for a couple of days. Read: "What wouldn't I do for a tutorial?".
An OUGS Symposium is of course first and foremost lectures, but it is more than that. It is getting together with people from other branches. It is to a limited extent also local geology in the form of "geo events" or fieldtrips. "Local" doesn't mean that it isn't significant on a "global" scale. Ole Nielsen tries to deduce global events from local rocks in "Global worry at local quarry".
Concrete facts about ferricrete. See for yourself!
The OUGS Symposium 2001 was in Dublin. How about doing Northern Ireland? Before you go - read: A Potted Geology of Northern Ireland.
Your webmaster went to the Dublin Symposium, and here is his impressions
from one the field trips.
