Sessions will focus on state-of-the-art approaches in engineering geology including aspects of groundwater in engineering geology, advanced desk study, earthworks and routes to CGeol.

The CPD training can be booked during registration for an additional £75 onto the ticket price (with includes lunch and refreshments).

Field Trip

The Conference afternoon field trip will have a Quaternary Engineering Geology focus linked to the proposed alignment of the Cambridge section of the proposed East-West Railway. Sites to be visited will include the classic glaciotectonic section at Barkway Pit with exposed chalk rafts, a traverse across the Moreton Stadial limits, discussion on Anglian tunnel valleys, and a quarry exposure at Newton Longville where there be two falls and a submission contest re. the Wolstonian v Anglian ages of the deposits.

The trip will be led by Dr Seb Gibson of Cambridge University and can be booked as part of the conference package and will include a packed lunch. Field trip will drop off at Bletchley Station c 17.00, returning to Cambridge by 18:15. Tickets can be purchased during registration for an additional £55 and will include a packed lunch.
