Hazel Beaumont co-organises the Ultimate Core Workshop
Hazel Beaumont, PhD research student in BDRG, co-organised the ultimate core workshop, which successfully ran last weekend.
The core workshop (9th - 10th of May 2014) was one day in the BGS Keyworth core shed and one day in the field. We focused on carbonate sedimentology around Wilksworth, with Pete Gutteridge (Cambridge Carbonates) leading the way. On both days we analysed the Lower Carboniferous Derbyshire platform which cyclic and contains slump structures. In the field we observed the interactions of the Dinantian carbonates and the deposition of the Namurian Ashover Grit.
