Professor Richard England

Professor Richard England, a geophysics expert in our Department of Geology, will give a public lecture on Tuesday, February 26. 

His lecture, A View of the Continental Crust: Integrating Geology and Seismology, will explain how combining scientific approaches can tell us more about the continental crust – the parts of the earth’s surface not covered by the oceans.

The lecture will explore what is known about the crust from the combination of geological and geophysical observations.

Professor England has lectured in Geophysics at the University of Leicester since 2000, and was integral in the development of the world-leading SEIS-UK group at the University, which is part of the NERC-funded Geophysical Equipment Facility.

The lecture will be held in Lecture Theatre 1 of the Ken Edwards Building, University of Leicester main campus, at 5.30pm on Tuesday, February 26. The event is free and open to all.
