WICKLOW IN THE GRIP OF AN ICE AGE

IQUA is delighted to announce the availability of Wicklow in the Grip of an Ice Age - A Self-Guided Tour of the Evidence of an Ice Age in Wicklow, hosted on the excellent Our Wicklow Heritage website, developed by the Wicklow Heritage Forum as an action of the County Wicklow Heritage plan (click here for the tour webpage).

The Virtual Tour retraces the May 2012 IQUA field trip to Wicklow, led by Profs. Pete Coxon, Fraser Mitchell and Patrick Wyse Jackson, which took place as part of the Dublin City of Science 2012. The trip comprised a tour to the northern Wicklow Mountains. There was a peat coring demonstration and an explanation of why the landscape now looks the way it does, considering the forests of the last 10,000 years and their clearance, and what the future may hold. Glacial features in the landscape including glacial corries, huge glacial lake basins and other features were explored.

The Virtual Tour locates and describes each of the key stops on the trip, with references to the IQUA field guide companion to the trip, which is available to buy in print for just 7 on our Field Guides page. Arguably the highlight of the Virtual Tour is a free interactive Google Maps tour (a version can also be downloaded and opened directly in Google Earth). We thank the efforts and support of Benjamin Thebaudeau and Wicklow County Council in the production of the Virtual Tour.
