Prof. Brian Williams – Emeritus Professor of Geology, University of Aberdeen

The Earth has undergone several glacial episodes throughout its history, of varying lengths of geological time and area of planet-cover, but none so globally-overwhelming as Snowball Earth (710 - 630 million years ago). Brian’s talk will travel back in time from our ‘modern’ glacial environments (Quaternary to Tertiary) to the Permo-Carboniferous era (350 - 250 million years ago) drawing on his research in Australia, Arabia and Oman. Finally, we will end up with the spectacular ‘Snowball Earth’ with many examples to show from around the world!
