Geology of the Belfast Hills - Introduction.
This introductory geology course will take place over 5 consecutive weeks and will provide a comprehensive look at not only geology as a subject but also at the geology and landscapes of the area in and around the Belfast Hills.

The course will begin with the building blocks of planet Earth, including how the Earth formed, what it’s made up of, geological time and the rock cycle. Subsequent evenings will look at the rocks, fossils and landscapes of the Belfast Hills, allowing you to discover how these were formed and exactly what they tell us about this area’s rich and diverse geological history. Ranging from searing hot deserts, to warm tropical seas, and from fiery volcanoes to icy wastelands, this course will not only introduce to you to one of the most fascinating of the natural sciences, but will allow you to discover some of the hidden secrets of the landscapes in and around Belfast. The course will be made up of four classroom based lectures and practical hands-on activities, as well as one field trip.
