The purpose of GSA International is to promote, create, and enhance opportunities for international cooperation, provide a forum for science and policy discussions that are international in scope and relevance, build collaborative relationships with divisions and associated societies on international issues and strengthen cooperation with international geoscientific societies. The International IIG is the membership arm of GSA International.
GSA's second Interdisciplinary Interest Group (International IIG) was approved by Council in November 2015. The International IIG provides a communication platform for GSA members and promotes international relevant discussions around global geoscience hot topics, meetings, and GSA global activities.
The International IIG encourages and hosts international geoscience and environmental-related discussion topics through the Connected Community platform and promotes meetings, exchanges of visiting scholars/lecturers, organizes Annual Meeting topical sessions, and helps organize and promote field workshops. GSA International replaces GSA International Section effective 1 January 2015.
Serving members in 118 countries, GSA programs unite the global science community in shaping the future of the Earth sciences. Wherever you live or work, GSA invites you to become involved by joining our network.
