Field Trip 1 Geowalk in Suomenlinna

Date:

11 September 2024

Time:

17:30 - 20:00 EEST (TBC)

The Suomenlinna Fortress Island, located just outside the city center of Helsinki, is a World Heritage site that was constructed as protection against Russian expansionism in the  mid 18th century.  Suomenlinna (or Viapori or Sveaborg) comprises of eight islands, and it is a popular tourist attraction, but also enjoyed by the local population of 900 permanent inhabitants. Besides the rich history and culture, Suomenlinna provides an excellent opportunity to observe the crystalline 1.9 Ga old rocks that were deformed and metamorphosed during the Svecofennian orogeny. During the walk-around Рexcursion, we will visit the glacially polished shoreline outcrops of the Suomenlinna island, where we will get insight into which types of ductile and brittle fabrics were developed into the rocks during and right after the ancient mountain-building processes. Furthermore, we will learn how these structures  subsequently contributed to the glacial erosion that finally shaped the islands into their present-day shape. 
 
The boat ride to Suomenlinna departs from the Market Place (Kauppatori;   https://maps.app.goo.gl/8nB9VUbPeEkAc2rX7 ) and takes approx. 20 minutes, one way. The duration of the walk is 2,5 hours and its length is approximately 5 km. 
Fieldtrip 2 name of fieldtrip

Date:

7 September 2023

Time:

00:00 - 00:00 BST

Field Trip Leaders:

Dr. Aaron Johnson (Executive Director of the American Institute of Professional Geologists)
Maureen Gallagher (Interim Director of Stakeholder Engagement, European Federation of Geologists)

This field trip will examine the connection between the surface and subsurface geology of a region and
land use, human impacts, and conservation. Our journey will illustrate the historic, current, and future
connection between humanity and Earth’s resources with multiple stops including Siccar Point and the
John Muir Museum in Dunbar. This field trip attempts to illustrate those connections by investigating
the relationship between bedrock geology, biodiversity, and human impacts. The selection of Siccar
Point and the Muir Museum will provide historical context illustrating early examples of citizen science
and the inexplicable connection between geology and conservation.
The scenery is breathtaking, the town of Dunbar welcoming (boasting the cleanest public bathrooms in
Scotland) and the conversation designed to provide new perspectives and energize participants to think
about the importance of the social license to operate and how to promote the ethos leading to
successful timely projects.

Executive Director, American Institute of Professional Geologists
Preliminary Schedule
08:00Depart Conference Center (EICC)
09:30Arrive Siccar Point ‚Äď Discussion of the importance of this site to the development of modern geological thought. Background will include some discussion of James Hutton, his connection to the land, and how his connection to the Scottish Enlightenment marked the birth of modern geology in the 1780s.
11:00Examine cultivated lands at Siccar Point and discuss the impact of cultivation on biodiversity in this region. This stop likely will include a discussion of edge habitat and the propagation of invasive species as native biodiversity declines.
11:30Depart Siccar Point
12:00Arrive John Muir’s Birthplace Museum, Dunbar
Split into two groups
Museum/Lunch then swap at 13:00
Discussion Points:
  • Nearly a century after Hutton, in the same neighborhood, John Muir (naturalist and geologist) became the champion of modern conservation,
  • Tour the museum to learn about the development of modern approaches to conservation and discuss how our understanding of conservation has changed over the last century,
  • The role of naturalists in and the influence of underlying geology on conservation efforts,
  • The important role geologists play in industry as active participants in identifying and using the Earth‚Äôs resources wisely.
  • 13:55Depart Museum
    14:20John Muir Country Park
    Discussion Points:
  • The importance of geotourism as a means of educating the public,
  • Contrasting biodiversity in the park to that of areas impacted by cultivation and other human activities,
  • Making connections between multiple land uses, conservation, and our reliance on the geological features of the Earth,
  • 30 min. free time to explore the beach and coastal park.
  • 15:45Depart for Conference Center
