The Geology and Scenery of Italy: The Role of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonic Plates Dr Lidia Lonergan Monday 10 February 2020

Dr Lidia Lonergan - Reader in Geotectonics, Imperial College

In English

We are now halfway through this year's programme and I hope you have been enjoying the very varied subjects that have been discussed so far.  Our next topic I’m sure won’t disappoint as Dr Lidia Lonergan will tell us about upheavals in Italy, this time of a geological nature, in her talk (in English) on The Role of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonic Plates.  I hope you will be able to join us for an earth shattering evening!  We look forward to welcoming you with wine and nibbles.

Best wishes,
Corynna Jeudwine
