IQUA-QRA JOINT FIELD MEETING 2015
The QRA teamed up with IQUA to explore the south coast of Ireland between 25th and 29th September. We visited classic sections in Blackwater Harbour, Ely House, Kilmore Quay, Bannow, Courtmacsherry and Howes Strand. We looked at the remains of a pingo, visited corries and a cave with new excavation of Pleistocene layers. We heard about deglaciation, peat initiation and vegetation change. We also cored an interglacial deposit. For full details, see our field meetings page.
