GEMS of Hull: Geology, Environment, Marine Science and Us Series 2
Speakers: Dr Anna Bird and Dr Eddie Dempsey
Dr Anna Bird is a lecturer in metamorphic geology who also works on Quaternary sediments. Her main interests are isotope geochemistry and geochronology: to establish timing(s) of orogenic events at high levels of precision and accuracy. Using geochronology of single mineral grains as a provenance indicator. Measuring and modelling isotopic ratios as a tracer of sediment provenance, crustal and mantle geological processes. Orogenic processes and climate: using geochemistry to evaluate the interplay between tectonics and climate on sediment deposition and provenance.
Dr Eddie Dempsey is a lecturer in Structural Geology at the University of Hull in the UK. Eddie uses evidence of deformation in the Earths crust such as faults, folds and fractures to reconstruct tectonic environments and changes to regional stress fields through time. Eddie also uses U-Pb and Re-Os isotope geochronology to accurately establish the timing of events such as fault zone development and ancient earthquakes. Eddie is passionate about geology and can usually be found talking about rocks either at an outcrop, in the lecture theatre, on the phone, online or over a pint. Eddie was recently nominated for a University Excellence Award for his external engagement work.
