Rob Raeside's final lecture?


On 13 April, Rob Raeside gave the final lecture of his career in the Tectonics class and handed in his red pen. Entitled "The Evolving Earth", he reviewed the evolution of sedimentation, magmatism and metamorphic processes through 4+ billions years of time with speculation of how plate tectonics (and life) might end in the future! After some 5000 or so lectures, he returned to the techniques of when he started lecturing in 1982, using the blackboard and coloured chalk to develop a timeline of the history of the earth.
