Prestigious grant awarded to Professor Jasper Knight

Jasper Knight has recently received a joint bilateral grant from IRG – NRF/São Paulo State Foundation (FAPESP) of Brazil Joint Science and Technology Research Collaboration,  for a two year project on valuing and protecting geoheritage.  Geoheritage sites are areas where important geological structures exist, which are coming under increasing threat from a number of areas including climate change. Geoheritage conservation is becoming an important issue and CCRM scientists are involved in this research.
