Environmental Geology
There is now a greater interest in the environment than ever before and we face concerns about the environmental impacts of almost every aspect of our daily lives. Water, soil, air and the biological environment can all be changed dramatically by the activities of industrial societies like our own, not least through mechanisms which are controlled by essentially geological processes. Waste disposal, contamination of land by industry, the impacts of mining, water pollution and even air quality (t

Radiolarian micropalaeontology: extracting radiolaria from sediment
Professor Simon Haslett discusses extracting radiolarian microfossils from rocks and sediments. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record. They can be collected from sediment accumulating on the sea-floor and retrieved through coring and extracted through sieving and chemical treatments. Radiolaria can be used in stratigraphy to date layers of rock and sediment through geological time, and also to reconstruct past environment

Design in Nature [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Sarah Coakley, Professor John Cottingham, Professor John Worrall | The idea that nature displays an inherent purpose, and more generally the hand of a wise designer, may have suffered a blow from Darwinian science, but it seems not to have been a death-blow. Indeed, from both academic and popular wings of theist opinion there is still considerable interest in arguments from design. The classic arguments contended that the natural world is so complex and suited to our surviv
