It is important that you access this field trip on a laptop or desktop PC.
Context: This virtual field trip was written for 2nd year Geology students at the University of Derby on the Applied Sedimentology module. It replaced our usual 6-day field trip to West Wales during the 2020-21 Covid pandemic. Students were provided with detailed instructions and additional information, and set specific tasks to complete for assessment, within our Blackboard virtual learning environment [screenshot]. Some of that information is reproduced here. This page serves as access to the field days and localities for the general public.
Warning: some geological licence has been taken at some locations in order to construct suitable exercises. Those of you who know these locations well will spot these - please be lenient!
