Mark Adams – ‘The Erosion of Truro Beaches’
TONIGHT @ 7pm
The Truro Hollows, Longnook, Pamet, Great Hollow and others, were cut east to west across the glacial plains many thousands of years ago and now play a role as erosion targets human settlements.
We’ll talk about the geologic and historical definitions of Truro, it’s unique landform, receiving the waves that travel over George’s bank to carve it and how these waves are changing with sea level rise.
Huge amounts of sand get transported by waves every hour of the day.
We’ll conclude with observations about how to read the landscape and reach your own conclusions about the future of our little town with oversized significance.
