Dr Alan Palmer PhD

Senior Lecturer in Earth Science

Institute of Agriculture and Environment

Roles and Responsibilities

Soil and Earth Sciences Postgraduate Representative.

Soil and Earth Science Seminar Series Convenor

Experienced in soil description and mapping, appropriate land use options and Quaternary geology. I specailise in mapping farms using standard and new techniques to improve both productive and environmental outcomes. This includes assessing potential and actual erosion and its mitigation.  I am also experienced in Quaternary geology, especially loess and gravel sequences, volcanic landscapes and deposits. I specialise in analysis and identification of volcanic ash. I have also worked with Quaternary aquifer systems.
