Extending from the coastal lowlands of Strangford Lough, County Down, through the Lough Neagh basin and the scenic Antrim coast to the lakelands of County Fermanagh, this trip will include a wide variety of sites that will highlight the impacts of regional glaciation on the North of Ireland, the diverse character of landscape evolution during the late-glacial and Holocene, and evidence for human-landscape interactions since the Neolithic period. It will also include a number of peatland and lake sites that have been used to reconstruct mid to late Holocene climate change and to develop regional tephrostratigraphies. During the excursion there will be an opportunity to visit the Giant’s Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark where issues of geoheritage conservation and management will be explored. A tour of the Bushmills Distillery will be included. The base for the trip will be the city of Belfast where delegates wishing to stay for an optional fifth day can tour the award winning ‘Titanic Belfast’ or Ulster Museums.
