This teaching resource looks at the field of geology and explores research into ‘slow-motion’ earthquakes. Dr Ake Fagereng, of Cardiff University in the UK, explains his expedition to New Zealand, which saw him investigate slow-slip events by examining sediment cores extracted from the seabed. The resource looks at the day to day life of an expedition, as well as the challenges and highlights Dr Fagereng faced. It also provides Dr Fagereng’s top tips for a career in geology and includes an activity sheet and discussion points – questions your students can answer in groups or individually.
