RA6d: Additional observations, Additional information

The Lapworth Museum is an integral part of the School of Earth Sciences and houses a large palaeontological collection of international importance, which underpins the work of the Palaeobiology & Palaeoenvironments Research Group. The museum also provides a forum for contact with international palaeobiologists who utilise the collections and is the principal conduit for supporting the public understanding of science through a programme of public lectures, day schools, schools liaison and participation in national Science Weeks.
The 22nd General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG99) was held in Birmingham in 1999, the first time the meeting has been in the UK since 1936, and was attended by 4051 participants. Westbrook was chairman of the organising committee and, together with others in the School, provided the base for the organisation of the assembly over a period of four and a half years.
