The society is developing and testing a members area of the website to access digital content, including past proceedings (being digitized) and newsletters.
Once finished members will be sent joining instructions.
Happy New year all.

All meetings at 7.30 and are on zoom unless otherwise indicated
Zoom meeting information is sent out once it is available.
With the emergence of a new Covid variant, advice from scientists most concerned with the pandemic, and concern about the nature of the venue has led to the Council having to consider whether it was better to postpone such a meeting until a more appropriate time. Consequently, after consultation it was decided that the Members’ Evening on 15 December is POSTPONED.
Wednesday 10th November at 7.30pm on Zoom
Dr Schillereff, Lecturer in Physical Geography, Kings College London
Lake Sediments & flooding, with particular reference to Cumbria
Zoom Meeting Information
Meeting ID: 886 6258 1891
In this talk, Daniel will explore how sediment cores extracted from multiple Cumbrian lakes can shed new light on flood frequency and magnitude over the last 1500 years. Daniel will review the physical processes which enable lakes to record sedimentary signatures of past floods, illustrate the value of these datasets in extending flood histories beyond conventional instrumental data from river gauging stations and outline what these sedimentary flood reconstructions can (and cannot yet) tell us about past, current and future trends in flooding across northwest England.
Wednesday 13th October at 7.30pm on Zoom

A Virtual Tour of Mt Etna
Meeting ID: 890 6219 1641
Mt Etna is Europe’s highest and most active volcano, and magma is constantly grumbling
in its rocky depths. Since February 2021 there has been a series of spectacular eruptions,
from lava fountaining through to paroxysmal explosions generating 10 km-high ash-rich
plumes. In this talk I will take you on a virtual tour of the summit region of Mt Etna, and
explore some of the techniques used by the Etna Volcano Observatory to monitor the
volcano and the hazards it poses to the local population of over a million people.
