AGM in Hamburg

2nd - 4th February 2018

Our AGM also includes a visit to a disused quarry to examine Permian and Quatenary outcrops, including Late Permian black shales (Kupferschiefer) and the cap rock of a salt diapir. As it is planned to use private cars rather than hire a minibus, please contact Fiona Till as soon as possible for planning transportation.

A guided tour around the new Elbe Philharmonic Hall will be arranged as well.
