Event Information

John and Ann Phillips Lecture, Hull University – Geological Mapping on Mars

Please note – the start time of the lecture will probably be 7pm, but has yet to be confirmed

YPS members will recall that, as a side project associated with the Geological Map, YPS has instituted a prize for the best undergraduate geological map dissertation at Hull University. Associated with this, the University established the annual John and Ann Phillips Lecture.

This year’s lecturer will be Professor Sanjeev Gupta (Imperial College London), who will talk about the challenges of carrying out geological mapping on Mars, which should give a fascinating new insight into the subject of geological maps.

YPS members are invited to attend this lecture, and it is hoped to arrange a group visit, by own and shared transport. We will meet before the lecture for a pub meal, (possibly in the Old Grey Mare pub, just opposite the University) but as this is the year when Hull is the City of Culture, it is anticipated that members may choose to arrive in Hull somewhat earlier, and take in one of the museums, or the newly refurbished Ferrens Gallery – outside of which you will have a last chance to view the ‘Blade’ installation, which will be removed two days later.

If you would like to take part in this event, please email Paul Thornley at ypsgeology@nullgmail.com or write to him c/o the Lodge.

(Paul will try to facilitate car-sharing, so please let him know if you need a lift, or could provide one, and whether you plan to spend some time in Hull before the lecture)
