Tutor/Facilitator Greg Woodford
Date: on/from Wed 2 Nov 2022 to end year
Class time: 10:00-11:15
This course tells the complete story about the current Earth – where it is; its
shape; its stability; how it changes, what it’s made of (rock and iron, water,
ice, air); what protects it and how it moves. By the completion of the
course, attendees will have a comprehensive appreciation of the wonderful
planet that we live on and how lucky we are to live on it at this time.
The level of the course is pitched at being suitable for non-experts. It is
deliberately light, entertaining and mainly non-technical in detail. All you
really need is curiosity. The intention of the course is to be informative and
Course notes will be provided in pdf and PowerPoint forms.
TUTOR: Greg was trained in science; formally he has three degrees and a
few diplomas, but the important thing is that he started his interest in
geology, physics and astronomy when he was about 14 and that interest has
never stopped, so, as he says: “I more or less know what I’m talking about”.
