Palaeoenvironment:Quaternary materials and succession related to climate and sea level change;

Mallorca Fieldwork Project Guidance

Below appears a table of potential fieldwork project topic areas. The topics identified should provide a reasonable range of initial ideas for you to use as a starting point for your potential project design exercise. Due to logistic constraints, numbers and venues are restricted. We are aiming to have groups of 4 people collecting data together, for health, safety and academic reasons. After the data collection phase in the field (and follow up in laboratory work if needed) an outline group presentation will be undertaken on the project, followed by an individual write-up.

Potential projects:
