A programme of presentations is being assembled that will be of interest to anyone wishing to know more about the underground environment. Further details will follow in later circulars, as well as via other BCRA news outlets.

Symposium

This year’s symposium will feature a keynote lecture by Dr. Peter Wynn (University of Lancaster) dedicated to Twentieth Century Records of Pollution within Stalagmites.  In addition, the symposium will include oral and poster presentations covering BCRA’s principal areas of interest. Following the symposium, an informal evening meal will be arranged for those who are interested. Details are to be announced.
