Using Fledermaus to visualise Brexit 1.0!
Fledermaus was recently used by Imperial College, London where researchers found evidence of how ancient Britain separated from Europe, which happened in two stages, they report in Nature Communications.
Professor Sanjeev Gupta, a co-author from the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial: “The breaching of this land bridge between Dover and Calais was undeniably one of the most important events in British history, helping to shape our island nation’s identity even today. When the ice age ended and sea levels rose, flooding the valley floor for good, Britain lost its physical connection to the mainland. Without this dramatic breaching Britain would still be a part of Europe. This is Brexit 1.0 – the Brexit nobody voted for.
Fledermaus was instrumental in analysis of the data and in producing the beautiful figures of the bathymetry data.”
