Out and about on Geography, the Earth and environment degree field trips

Students on our Geography, the Earth and environment courses regularly get out in the field, both locally and further afield. Trips so far this academic year have included:

  • Our Exploring Brighton trips to introduce new students to our wonderful city. This included Stanmer Park and a guided tour around community projects and the Earthship eco-home
  • Trips to the Pleistocene Thames and Medway sites of Swanscombe, Baker’s Hole and Cuxton
    • Introducing the politics of ‘heritage’ and struggles over the meanings and use of space with a visit Hastings and St Leonards just along the Sussex coast
      • Fieldwork on the coast at Pett Level, Hastings, examining and reconstructing sedimentary environments of deposition as far back as ~140 Ma ago – to a time of the Baryonyx dinosaur
      • A visit to Shoreham Port to speak to their sustainability team about small-scale wind power, on-site green hydrogen, butterfly conservation and making sustainability meaningful in commercial/industrial environments.
