About The Event

The cycles of the earth are strongly influenced by astronomical events.  This week we'll try to explain that relationship by looking at:

  • The Seasons
  • The Milankovitch cycles - relating to the orbit of the earth around the sun
  • Sunspot cycles, and
  • Snowball earth

As usual, we'll be doing some astronomical modelling during the second half of the session
