Megaflood

3.30pm, Saturday 8th September 2018

A talk by ecologist/geologist Melanie Wrigley, of the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership. Hear about the amazing ancient environments that led to the deposition of the sediments that make the White Cliffs. Learn about the landscape and environment 500,000 million years ago, when the ‘land bridge’ of chalk hills connected Britain to France, and the astonishing megaflood that made Britain an island. How do these ancient climatic and geological processes inform us about climate change today?

This event is part of this year’s SALT Festival of the Sea and the Environment co-curated by Go to the Pine, Folkestone Quarterhouse and Folkestone Fringe.
