Mountains to be a key topic at Portsmouth lecture

College in running for top national awards

Have your say

A GREAT mountain range stretching across continents and oceans is the subject of a public lecture at the University of Portsmouth.

Professor Rob Strachan’s inaugural lecture will tell the story of how the Caledonian mountains were born out of tectonic plate collisions 400m years ago.

Geologist Prof Strachan has spent a career studying the mountains in the field and the laboratory.

The free lecture takes place tomorrow at 6pm at the Richmond building in Portland Street.
