The Geology of London

Diana Clements, Geologists' Association


Diana Clements will talk about aspects of the Geology of London in the context of the Thames valley. There will also be discussion of some of the best geological sites in London and possible new ones and will include discussions of the paleoenvironments. She will talk about the problems of conveying geology in an urban area both in terms of geoconservation and interpretation and some ways in which the London Geodiversity Partnership is trying to address both. This is now the area of her focus.

Diana became interested in the Geology of London following an exhibition she put on in her local museum Beneath your feet: the geology of Islington. Inevitably the plug had to be pulled on a number of avenues of research such as the Lost Rivers and brickmaking and further work on these led her into exploring other avenues of the geology, London-wide. In 2010 she published a GA Guide on the Geology of London in conjunction with colleagues from the Natural History Museum and elsewhere and this led to her involvement with the London Geodiversity Partnership. Since then the geology of London has remained her main research interest and she is now involved with conserving and interpreting London’s geology for a wider audience.
