Outreach

Here at the University of Plymouth we recognise the importance of enthusing the next generation of Earth Scientists, whether it is through visits to local schools, in house events, or wider promotion of the subject via national societies.  

Every year we hold a number of events and produce outreach material, which is increasingly digital in nature.  As a result we will start to share a variety of resources through this website that are free for everyone to use, and we hope to build this resource over time. If you are a school or educational group and want to know more, or are interested in a visit, then please get in contact with us at earthsciences@plymouth.ac.uk.

A level Geohazards Conference 2019

Professor Iain Stewart’s keynote talk on communicating geohazards and disaster risk from the 2019 A level Geohazards conference. Iain covers topics as diverse as geohazard occurrence (volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, tsunamis), risk management and communication, and the effects of a range of hazards drawing upon a number of case studies such as Mount Merapi volcanic eruption and the Boxing Day tsunami to look at the intersection between physical sciences and human responses.
