COMPANY DIRECTOR PROFILE:


STEVEN WRIGHT BSc.
CELELD ROCKS

I am a Geologist and graduated from the University of Derby in 1993 with a degree in Geology & Geography.

I then worked in Oil Industry as a logging Geologist on offshore rigs and platforms mostly in North Sea. Also exciting work in AUSTRALIAS Outback on a land rig site, offshore Republic of Congo, AFRICA and the FALKLAND ISLANDS.

I love the great outdoors and have hiked /climbed most fells, hills & most of the high mountains here in Britain. I have also hiked/climbed in Iceland, Sweden, Norway, France, Italy, South Spain and Switzerlands High Alps.

I now develop and present my own amazing workshops with my own spectacular and wonderful resources of rocks with many from various parts of Britain and also from countries I have travelled in. There are also working 'erupting' volcano models hand made by myself that are very realistic and my other models relating to the earths structure and also glaciers. Workshops are for school classes with over 900 schools visited not including return visits.
They are also for public science events and relevant visitor centres.
All of my workshops relate to Geology and Physical Geography, linked to many science, geography and even several history topics. All workshops on offer are listed on ''Workshop Details' and 'Earth Science Venues/Events' page.


I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AT YOUR SCHOOL AND VENUE SOON

COMPANY FOUNDED: 2002 IN ABERDEEN SCOTLAND NOW LOCATED IN CUMBRIA.


COMPANY AIMS: PRESENTING WONDERFUL VERY 'HANDS ON' GEOLOGY & EARTH SCIENCE WORKSHOPS WITH HIGH QUALITY RESOURCES TO SCHOOL CLASSES. WORKSHOPS ARE VARIOUS, ALSO FLEXIBLE WITH RELEVANT CONTENT AND ACTIVITIES FOR VARIOUS CURRICULUM BASED TOPICS. SCIENCE, GEOGRAPHY AND EVEN SEVERAL HISTORY TOPICS ARE COVERED.
WORKSHOPS ALSO AIM TO ACHIEVE THE CURRICULUM OUTCOMES. NEW WORKSHOPS CAN BE DEVELOPED THAT LINK TO CHANGES TO CURRICULUM.
PRESENTING HIGH QUALITY WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS FOR THE PUBLIC.


COMPANY NAME: ORIGINATES FROM CELTIC AND THE 'ELD' FROM ICELANDIC. 'ELD' USED IN A CONTEXT AS A PREFIX IN A WORD RELATES TO FIRE, VOLCANO OR ERUPTION OF.
CELELD ROCKS CONTEXT IS 'ELDFELL' WHICH MEANS 'FIRE MOUNTAIN OR VOLCANO.


CELELD ROCKS, ROCKS: STEVEN HAS COLLECTED ROCKS AND SOME FOSSILS & MINERALS SINCE HE WAS VERY YOUNG AND HAS MANY WONDERFUL SAMPLES OF ALL TYPES AND MANY KINDS MOSTLY FROM WALKS & CLIMBS ALONG COASTS, RIVERS, FELLS, HILLS AND MOUNTAINS THROUGHOUT BRITAIN. STEVEN HAS CLIMBED MOST OF BRITAINS HIGH MOUNTAINS AND MOST OF BRITAINS EXTINCT VOLCANOES.
THE BRITISH ISLES ARE GLOBALLY RENOWNED FOR HAVING THE LARGEST VARIETY OF ROCKS, STRUCTURE AND LANDFORMS FOR ITS SIZE IN COMPARISON TO ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
SOME ROCKS HAVE BEEN COLLECTED FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD AND ESPECIALLY FROM CLIMBS/HIKES TO ACTIVE & DORMANT VOLCANOES IN ICELAND, ITALY AND FRANCE. ALSO FROM HIKES/CLIMBS IN SWEDEN, NORWAY AND TO SUMMIT OF SEVERAL OF THE HIGHEST ALPINE PEAKS IN SWITZERLAND.
STEVEN HAS CLIMBED ON GLACIERS IN THE HIGHER PEAKS OF EUROPES ALPS INCLUDI
NG THE LONGEST IN EUROPE AND SOME IN ICELAND.

STEVENS SPECIALISMS: IGNEOUS ROCKS, VOLCANOES, METAMORPHIC ROCKS AND ALSO GLACIERS & GLACIATION.


ICELAND CONNECTION:
STEVEN FIRST CLIMBED IN 2002 THE FAMOUS ELDFELL VOLCANO ON THE ISLAND OF HEIMAEY ICELAND, AN ERUPTION FROM A FISSURE IN JANUARY 1973 NEARLY DESTROYED THE TOWN BUT IT SURVIVED AND NOW THRIVES. THIS VOLCANO IS IN THE MIDDLE PHOTO AT TOP OF PAGE.
STEVEN ALSO EXPERIENCED THE ICELAND 2010 LAVA ERUPTION 'VERY CLOSE UP' FROM THE EYJAFJALLAJÖKULL VOLCANO WHICH THEN CONSEQUENTLY EXPLODED MUCH ASH GROUNDING 100,000 FLIGHTS ACROSS EUROPE. THE ASH EVEN REACHED CENTRAL RUSSIA AND NORTH AFRICA. STEVEN THEN CLIMBED THE VOLCANO TO SUMMIT CRATER IN JULY 2013. OTHER ICELANDIC VOLCANOES CLIMBED INCLUDE THE FAMOUS SNĘFELLSJÖKULL (JULES VERNES JOURNEY TO CENTRE OF EARTH), HEKLA, ASKJA AND IN AUGUST 2015 ICELANDS HIGHEST VOLCANO AND PEAK ON THE ÖRĘFAJÖKULL. THIS IS PART OF EUROPES LARGEST ICE SHEET VATNAJÖKULL. IN 2015 THE NEW LAVA FLOWS FROM 2014-2015 ERUPTION OF BĮRŠARBUNGA WERE VISITED.
2017: LAKI CRATERS EXPLORED FROM THE 1783-1784 ERUPTION. RETURN TO VATNAJ
öKULL TO STUDY THE GLACIAL RETREAT. RETURN VIA CLIMB UP FROM SKóGAR TO NEW VOLCANOES MAGNķ & MOši BY EYJAFJALLAJöKULL AND ALSO TO ELDFELL VOLCANO HEIMAEY. OBSERVED AND STUDIED CHANGES SINCE 2010 ERUPTIONS & 2013 FOR NEW VOLCANOES ALSO SINCE 2002 AND 2013 FOR ELDFELL.
MANY GEOTHERMAL AREAS ALSO EXPLORED 2002-2017.
