Sedgwick 200: the Sedgwick Bicentenary Meeting

Log in to speed up the completion of this form.

Adam Sedgwick was one of the founding fathers of Geology, and 2018 marks 200 years since he was appointed to the Woodwardian Chair of Geology at the University of Cambridge. We are celebrating this bicentenary with a one-day conference, to be held in the Department of Earth Sciences followed by a dinner hosted at Trinity College, Cambridge. 

The talks will begin with a brief introduction to Sedgwick and his times, followed by a discussion of how we can predict and mitigate the effects of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. There will be talks on the Anthropocene and the effect we are having on the Earth’s climate,  and an introduction to geology on other planets and the search for extraterrestrial life. We hope you will join us for this exciting programme.
