Past Climates of Jersey Talk

Earth's climate has been described as an angry beast – prone to dramatic and at times catastrophic swings that fundamentally and permanently mark the landscape and its inhabitants.
Dr Stevens is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University in Sweden. He leads a multi-disciplinary team that is investigating the climate and landscape history of Jersey. He is especially fascinated by the role that fine, wind-blown mineral dust known as loess plays in the climate system and the record of climate and landscape evolution that these deposits contain.
During his FREE talk, he will explain the work his team is undertaking in Jersey, what it can tell us about the Island’s climate and landscape history.
