Student presentations at the Sill

UG and MSc students presenting the results of their research on bog restoration at Lampert and monitoring techniques using satellite images – to local farmers, landowners, Natural England and Northumberland National Park Authority. So proud of all them as they answer the questions the practitioners are asking. Thanks Abi and Dr Richard Bevan — at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

Graduation – MSC

Graduation again. The same students who were dancing on the Whinsill and wandering in the WildWood, all did amazing dissertations and now it’s time to say, not ‘goodbye’ but ‘keep in touch’. Miss them already. Oh- and I’m trying on Simon’s hat 🙂

First Years’ First Conference

All first years had to create a poster (visible on the wall, look) and give a 5 minute presentation on a question of their choice under the general theme of Food Security at their first conference this week. They rose to the occasion, and the Environmental Science, Earth Science and Applied Plant Science students had the added please of our PVC Prof Phil Wright calling by to hear their talks on Desertification in Iran, El Nino in Australia, Californian Drought and Volcanoes and Food Production.
