It is important that you access this field trip on a laptop or desktop PC.
Context: This virtual field trip was written for 2nd year Geology students at the University of Derby on the Applied Sedimentology module. It replaced our usual 6-day field trip to West Wales during the 2020 Covid pandemic. Students were provided with detailed instructions and additional information, and set specific tasks to complete for assessment, within our Blackboard virtual learning environment [screenshot 1 ; screenshot 2]. Some of that information is reproduced here. This page serves as access to the field days and localities for the general public.
Warning: some geological licence has been taken at some locations in order to construct suitable exercises. Those of you who know these locations well will spot these - please be lenient!
